Shipping to and from Turkey: What you need to know

Online Workshop


The free trade agreement signed between the two nations is a historic FTA and came into effect on January 1st, 2021.

The agreement ensures preferential trading terms for UK businesses that exported more than £1bn worth of machinery, and iron and steel exports worth £575m, to Turkey in 2019.

It also ensures UK businesses can continue to import under preferential tariffs, compared with no agreement. 

Turkey straddles both Europe and Asia and borders a range of countries. Its strategic location means it can act as a springboard for UK companies to do business in markets such as Central Asia and the South Caucasus.

Attend this workshop to discover what’s changed and how to adjust to the changes.
