“Turkey exported 1.5 billion dollars a year in 1974. In 1990, it exported 1.5 billion dollars in one month. Yesterday [October 15], we exported $ 1.5 billion in one day. We will work harder, we will produce more, we will become stronger, ”said Mush.

In September 2021, with its $ 20.7 billion in monthly exports, the Turkish economy set a new record in its history, the report adds.

“The success of exports will continue, Turkey will grow,” added the minister.
