AA PhotoTurkey and Poland have the potential to double bilateral trade to $6 billion, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Çavuşoğlu said March 24.
“Poland is a country with which our bilateral trade volume has increased without a break,” Çavuşoğlu said, addressing the media at a gala dinner held in honor of visiting Polish Foreign Minister Grzegorz Schetyna.
He added that Turkey wanted an increase in the volume of mutual investments. “Turkish firms in Poland are at present carrying out projects worth approximately $1.3 billion,” Çavuşoğlu said.
Schetyna, who is on an official visit to Turkey between March 24 and 26, said Turkey and Poland celebrated their 600th anniversary of diplomatic relations in 2014.
“Apart from the political field, our bilateral ties in the economy and local administration sectors have also continued at a very good level,” he said.
Schetnya also presented an order of merit to Turkish Ambassador to Poland Yusuf Ziya Özcan for his contributions to Poland-Turkey relations.
