Serbia, Turkey to increase trade Izvor: ANADOLIJA/Cumhurbaşkanlığı/Murat Çetinmühürdar

The presidents of Serbia and Turkey said on Monday their two countries would greatly increase the level of trade

Speaking at a news conference in Ankara, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said trade levels would be raised “dramatically” this year.

He said trade between Turkey and Serbia stood at around a billion Dollars in 2017 and added that a rise of 31.4 percent was reported in the first quarter of the year. “We expect trade to stand at 1.3 billion Dollars by the end of the year,” Vucic said.

Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan said trade would be raised to the level of 2-3 billion Dollars from last year’s “satisfactory” level of more than a billion Dollars for the first time. “We will raise that to two billion and later to three billion,” he said.

Speaking of Turkish investments in the Western Balkans, Erdogan said the Belgrade-Sarajevo highway will help strengthen ties in the region, adding that it will be built with Turkish aid.
