Egypt: Canceling Customs On Egyptian Exports to Turkey

Turkey has announced the cancellation of customs fees imposed on all Egyptian exports, while Turkish businessmen voiced their desire to amend the free trade agreement between the two countries to accelerate the abolition of customs fees on the Turkish products exported to Egypt, instead of waiting till 2020 as stipulated by the agreement.

Minister of Information Salah Abdel-Maksoud said Turkey has proved to be the right friend of Egypt.

Egypt witnessed a great revolution and the country will move forward to achieve all uprising gains, added Abdel Maksoud in an address at the opening ceremony of a conference on the story of success of the Turkish economy, organized by the Egyptian Businessmen Development Association.
