Trade Mission to Turkey
26 - 30 September 2016

Recruitment for this mission has now closed. We will update this page shortly with the Northern Ireland companies who will be attending.

Turkey Export Market

Turkey is a sizeable market with some £36.3m in goods and services being exported from Northern Ireland in 2015. The Turkish economy is projected to be the second fastest economy in the world by 2018 and offers opportunities across several sectors. With its large, young and well-educated population (circa 80 million), Turkey is a member of the EU Customs Union and is negotiating for full EU membership. The recent political issues have been a cause for concern but for certain companies there will remain good opportunities.

Export advice and guidance

In addition to the export advice and guidance provided by Invest NI's trade team in Belfast, we have appointed an in-market trade advisor who can provide tailored market research and individual appointment arranging for your company.

The cost of this service is heavily subsidised by Invest NI and will be £500 +VAT for one mission centre and £750 +VAT for two centres.
