“Turkey’s agricultural and industrial products are strong on world markets. I believe that Turkey’s developed ecosystem will contribute more to Sudan with the [new] agreement,” said Oktay Ercan, head of the Turkey-Sudan Business Council of the Turkish Foreign Economic Relations Board (DEIK), referring to a new bilateral pact signed this week.
“As the Turkey-Sudan Business Council, while organizing more events, and bringing together the business worlds of the two countries, we will continue to work to reach a $2 billion trade volume soon,” he told Anadolu Agency.
On Wednesday Turkish Economy Minister Nihat Zeybekci and Hatim el-Sir Ali, Sudan’s trade minister, signed an association agreement to boost trade.
Ercan said the agreement will promote joint investments by the two countries.
“Especially after our President’s [Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s] visit [to Khartoum], Turkey carried out huge and strategic projects,” he added.
Late December, Erdogan visited Khartoum and called for more Turkish investment in Sudan.
“Sudan’s development means Turkey’s development,” Ercan added.
