Egypt provides great opportunities for Turkish exporters. Yaman said, noting that during the visit the Turkish delegation conducted hundreds of meetings, during which they noticed “very positive interest” from the Egyptian businessmen.

The high volume of Turkish exports to Egypt confirms his optimism, he added, with natural stone exports amounting to $70 million during 2021 compared to $34 million in 2020.

He said he expects these figures to continue to increase.
