During the 2014 fiscal year, United States exported nearly $2.1 billion in food and agricultural products to Turkey, making it the 12th-largest U.S. market. Turkey consistently ranks as the second-largest market for U.S. cotton, and other major U.S. exports to Turkey include soybeans, soybean meal, and tree nuts.

In an attempt to further improve trade prospects, U.S. and Turkish negotiators recently initiated trade talks, even while Turkey’s accession to the European Union has reportedly stalled.
