AKİB achieved success in production and exports despite the effects of the earthquake

Mediterranean Exporters' Associations (AKİB), with their exports of 3 billion 596 million dollars in the first quarter of 2023, supported Turkey's exports of 61.1 billion dollars by 6.6 percent.

AKİB achieved success in production and exports despite the effects of the earthquake

With the export of 1 billion 383 million dollars realized by AKİB in March, regional exports reached a value of 3 billion 569 million dollars in the first three months of the year. AKİB Coordinator Chairman Fuat Tosyalı stated that they made great efforts to continue production and exports despite the negativities experienced due to the earthquake disaster. President Fuat Tosyalı said that in addition to focusing on the problems in the earthquake area, they are trying to restore production, and that they are trying to provide solutions by transferring the problems and demands of exporters to the relevant authorities of the state.

State support is important at the point of exporters' demands

Stating that the provinces of Hatay and Adana, which are in the responsibility area of AKİB, are directly affected by earthquakes, there are serious problems in production, supply and logistics, Tosyalı said, “Our exports in our region decreased by 24 percent in the first quarter of 2023 compared to the same period of the previous year. This picture shows the reflection of the destruction caused by the earthquake disasters that occurred on 6 February in the production and supply chain. There is a need for the most effective implementation of new government incentives and support mechanisms for the continuity of production, exports, employment and commercial activities in our region. Logistics, supply, new investments, establishment of infrastructure, protection of employment, access to finance and tax exemption are the most important topics in the demands of regional exporters. We express our gratitude for the support provided by our state to the disaster area, and we sincerely believe that we will recover much faster thanks to the new steps to be taken.”

Iron and steel was among the highest export values

Coordinator Chairman Fuat Tosyalı evaluated the exports of 8 Unions affiliated to AKİB in the first quarter of 2023. He said that they reached the highest export values in iron-steel, chemistry, grains and pulses. Stating that the Chemicals and Products Exporters' Association performed the most exports in the January-March period with a value of 925.5 million dollars, Tosyalı said, “Our Ferrous and Non-Ferrous Metals Exporters' Association is second with a value of 761.4 million dollars, and Cereals with a value of 521.5 million dollars. Our Pulses, Oilseeds and Products Exporters' Association ranked third.”
