Overview About International Trade in Turkey

Main Industry Sectors

Agriculture in Turkey, which contributes nearly 10% of the GDP and employs practically a third of the population, still suffers from low productivity because of its management system (small farms). Wheat is the main crop. The country is the third biggest exporter of tobacco in the world, the leading producer of hazelnuts (70% of world production). Mineral resources are abundant but under-exploited.

The manufacturing industry, the main industrial activity of the country, makes up nearly 30% of the GDP and commands almost 18% of the workforce, the textile and automobile sectors being the main activities. The Turkish government gives special priority to large infrastructure projects, particularly in the transport sector, which mostly function under the BOT model (build, operate, transfer).

The tertiary sector contributes slightly less than two-thirds to the GDP. Tourism represents 4% of the GDP with about 13 million tourists a year and almost 22milions in profits, thus making it one of the key sources of foreign currency for the country.
