turkish exports

Turkey's exports to Libya exceeded $758 million in the first quarter of this year, according to the Turkish Exporters Council.

The chemical products topped the export volume by $105.2 million, per the Turkish Exporters Council figures.

On Wednesday, the Turkish and Libyan Businessmen Association said that textiles and ready-made clothing came next with 103.4 million, then grains, legumes, and oilseed products with 102.7 million.

The head of the association, Mortada Koronfil, said that Turkey managed to maintain this rate of exports to Libya despite "the devastating impact of the earthquake in the country."

He stressed the importance of developing ties between the two countries, especially on entry visas and air cargo.
