Turkey unveils logo for locally-made products

Turkish Trade Minister Ruhsar Pekcan on Sept. 19 unveiled a logo for locally-made products.

“Thus, our citizens, through labels, will be able to distinguish the goods produced by our people who produce, invest and employ in this country,” Pekcan said during a press meeting at the capital Ankara.

Pekcan added that foreign companies, which are producing goods in Turkey, will also be able to use the logo on their products.

“Goods of foreign companies, which believe in the Turkish economy, generate jobs, invest in and produce in Turkey will be considered locally made,” she said.

“We support their presence in Turkey,” the minister added.

She said the ministry would take the necessary steps to ward off companies and institutions that intend to harm manufacturers and consumers through speculations.

According to a newly introduced regulation by the Trade Ministry on Sept. 18, all goods produced in Turkey are required to carry a special label showing they are made in Turkey.

The move was aimed at supporting economic stability through promoting the sale of Turkish products, the ministry said in a statement.
