Turkish businessman: Developed trade and economic relations might stimulate political dialogue between Armenia and Turkey

  • Friday, October 5, 17:41

 Developed trade and economic relations might stimulate political dialogue between Armenia and Turkey, businessmen from Van (Turkey) Kadri Salaz said during the 4th Armenian- Turkish business conference in Yerevan on Friday.

He said that Turkish businessmen are unable to do anything to lift the ban on Armenian imports but will try their best to establish contacts with their Armenian counterparts.

Kurdish businessman from Van Sayid Binet said that they have come to Armenia not as Turks but as businessmen so that their contacts convince the authorities that they must open the border with Armenia.

The 4th Armenian-Turkish two-day business conference kicked off in Yerevan on October 5. The event organizer is the UIEA with the support of USAID, Eurasian Partnership Foundation, and International Center for Human Development. The Black Sea Trust for Regional Cooperation (BST), Marshal Foundation, is co-financing the event. Over 50 Turkish businessmen from Eastern regions of Turkey are invited to the conference.

According to the National Statistical Service of Armenia, unfavorable balance of trade with Turkey fell 12.5% for Jan-Aug 2012 versus the same period of 2011 to $125.5 mln. The commodity turnover with Turkey for the period under review totaled $126.7 mln, with a 12.5% decline.  Import of goods from Turkey totaled $126.1 mln (down 12.5%), with export making up an insignificant part of total turnover (down 18.1%).
