About Türkiye

Türkiye is a large and fascinating market with plenty of export opportunities for UK exporters. It is home to both large multinationals and local businesses with a strong entrepreneurial culture, the country’s prospects are positive and there is room for growth.

Türkiye 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. Businesses can get strong support from UK Export Finance.

Türkiye and the UK have developed strong commercial ties, particularly in sectors such as energy, infrastructure, healthcare, technology, retail, defence and security, aerospace, and financial and business services. The UK has signed a trade agreement with Türkiye, which is now in effect.
