5Days - 4Nights
EVENT BRIEF In the light of ongoing coronavirus where China is the most affected country and most airlines stopped flying over there, we believe traders or importers in Ghana must look out for other possible areas of importing their goods. As a concerned business, we have put together a roadshow in Istanbul where we will connect Ghanaian traders with wholesalers and manufacturers from Turkey. We have partnered with MK Travels, which owns a number of hotel apartments in Istanbul, has their own vehicles and also has good connections with exporters all over Turkey. We are very sure this event will be very useful for all traders who currently import all kinds of goods for their business.
WHY TURKEY Turkey has been an industrial hub for Europe for a long time. Turkey is the European Union’s 5th largest trading partner, both in exports and imports. The EU is by far Turkey’s number one import and export partner, as well as a source of foreign direct investment. Goods produced in Turkey normally meet the EU’s high standard and therefore we can be sure of very good quality products to ensure a more sustainable business. Exports from Turkey increased 6.4 percent from a year earlier to USD 14.69 billion in December 2019, as shipments of manufactured products, which accounted for 93.0 percent of total sales, went up 6.5 percent. There is direct connectivity from Accra to Istanbul on Turkish Airlines for only a 6hrs flight. This makes your journey short and maximizes your time as well. The time taken for goods imported from Turkey to reach Ghana is roughly 28 days, far shorter than when imported from Asia and other countries.
