’20 billion Euro’ target from Ankara Chamber of Commerce

Ankara Chamber of Commerce Chairman Baran stated that the trade volume between Turkey and France should be increased to over 20 billion Euros as soon as possible.

According to the statement made by Ankara Chamber of Commerce (ATO), France’s Ambassador to Ankara Herve Magro visited ATO President Baran.
While giving information to Ambassador Magro about Ankara’s economy, Baran stated that Boeing and Airbus parts are produced in Ankara.

Stating that Turkey and France have historical relations dating back to the Ottoman Empire, Baran said that the trade volume of 14 billion Euros is far from expressing the potential of the two countries when mutual investments and cooperation are taken into account. He reminded that they set a target of 20 billion Euros. Baran said, “France is among the top 10 countries with which Turkey trades. Besides France’s foreign trade volume approaching 1 trillion Euros, our trade figure is very low. We must increase this figure to over 20 billion Euros as soon as possible.” made its assessment.

Noting that there are direct flights from Ankara to Paris, Baran stated that cooperation can be made with France in the automotive, textile, pharmaceutical and tourism sectors.


Ambassador Magro also stated that French companies see Turkey as an important market. Emphasizing that the chip crisis affected automobile production and sales, Magro said that chip factories should be brought from the Far East to nearby geographies. Magro noted that they see the disadvantages of production in distant geographies.

After the meeting, Baran presented Ankaragücü’s jersey to Ambassador Magro, who was born in Ankara due to his family’s duty and spent his childhood years there.
