Libya a door to vast African market, minister says
State Minister for Foreign Trade Zafer Çağlayan has said Libya is full of opportunities for Turkish exporters as it is a springboard for better access to African markets while also offering advantageous investment and production conditions
“There are good opportunities for cooperation, especially in the construction, contracting, energy, tourism and agriculture sectors. Striking partnerships with Libya to make this country a base of production and investment and exporting to other countries, especially ones in Africa, would be quite a rational option,” he said.
Along with a team of bureaucrats, the president of the Turkish Exporters’ Assembly (TİM), Mehmet Büyükekşi, and the president of the Turkish Contractors Association (TMB), Erdal Eren, accompanied the minister on the visit.
