Turkish PM seeks to improve trade with Bulgaria

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday voiced willingness to increase trade between Turkey and Bulgaria.

“We do not consider that figure a sufficient one. And we will exert efforts to improve that further,” said Erdogan at a joint press conference with his visiting Bulgarian counterpart Boyko Borissov after their talks in the Turkish capital of Ankara.

Erdogan said Bulgaria was the most important trade partner of Turkey in the Balkans, but there were some problems in trade of agricultural products, fresh fruits and vegetables.
