Explaining that 9 Unions increased their exports and 3 Unions lagged behind last year's performance, Aegean Exporters' Unions Coordinator President Jak Eskinazi said, “Despite this difficult conjuncture, we started 2023 with a 5 percent increase. Our ferrous and non-ferrous metals, chemistry, ready-to-wear, aquatic products and animal products, fresh fruit sectors reached three-figure export figures. The share of our agricultural exporters in EİB's exports increased from 34 percent to 42 percent. We can say that our agriculture sector keeps the exports of our region alive. We foresee that our agricultural exports will exceed 7 billion dollars in the next three months.” said.

Eskinazi said, “The stagnation continues in our industry sectors, the backbone of our exports. The next 6 months are critical. The exchange rate should increase at the rate of inflation, so that we can maintain our competitiveness, the reductions in energy prices are insufficient, inflation accounting should be implemented, and the problems experienced by exporters regarding access to finance should be resolved. Due to the policies implemented in Turkey, we had to export our tradable products in 2022 at a lower price than the import price. While the foreign trade deficit widened, export products were exported at prices even lower than they should have been. In January, our foreign trade deficit increased from 10 billion dollars to 14 billion dollars compared to last year, and we warned that our foreign trade deficit, which reached 2022 billion dollars in 110, could reach 150 billion dollars in this conjuncture. The figures in January reveal how right our warning was. If urgent measures are not taken, our foreign trade deficit may reach 160 billion dollars.” he said.

Jak Eskinazi said, “We visit our members in their own cities by organizing "Aegean Export Meetings" in order to increase the number of exporting companies in the Aegean Region, to strengthen our ties, and to discuss the problems in export with all our stakeholders. Our exporters are extremely diligent. We anticipate that we will exceed $2023 billion in 18 if the appropriate climate is provided. We are more hopeful for the second half of 2023. As EIB, we started our contacts to distant markets with our Malaysia and Colombian trade delegations, and our exporters fulfill their responsibilities.” he ended his speech.
