Turkey: Turkish Exports to Russia Fail to Meet Expectations

Turkey expected to benefit when Russia implemented an agricultural trade ban against the United States, Canada, European Union, Australia, and Norway in August 2014. However, exports to Russia have not increased as dramatically as anticipated, especially in terms of revenue. Furthermore, exports of most products have been sporadic and variable. The commodities that have seen the greatest boost in trade to Russia include citrus fruits (lemons, mandarins, oranges), apples, and hatching eggs.
