Turkey is expanding its efforts to grab a larger share of this huge target market, particularly in the wake of Beijing's broad pledges to continue to open China's market to Turkish products.
The Turkish business community has been keeping a close eye on China, organizing many business trips to the country in order to boost trade in recent years.
The trade volume between Turkey and China, which stood at $1.1 billion in 2001, reached $23.6 billion as of 2018, according to official data.
Despite the importance of the Chinese market for Turkish commercial efforts, the bilateral trade volume has been more in favor of China, with Turkey's imports standing at over $20 billion, compared to nearly $3 billion in exports in 2018. ■
