Adnan Ersoy Ulubaş, Chairman of the Union of Mediterranean Iron and Non-Ferrous Metals Exporters Association, stated that they are the second union to carry out the largest exports in the sector and that the largest share of success belongs to the iron-steel flat hot product group which has achieved an export increase of 183 million dollars compared to last year.

Ulubaş said that in the first six months of the year Ulubas exports iron and steel flat hot products to 33 countries and that 18 new countries including Italy, Belgium, England, Portugal and Greece have started exporting to this group of products.

Ulubaş stated that the total number of exported countries reached 178. “With the rising domestic demand in China, Turkey has increased its competitive power as well as rising prices.” Our Mediterranean exporters have turned this advantage into advantage and it is necessary to go beyond the methods and rituals known for reaching our 2023 targets.
