ISTANBUL (Jul. 22)
Trade between Israel and Turkey has increased in recent months and Turkish firms dealing with Israel have found it much easier to obtain import licenses than firms dealing with many other countries, the Istanbul Chamber of Commerce reported today.
The report said that Turkey has exported considerable quantities of tobacco, cotton and grapes to Israel and has accepted in return shipments of cork, rubber and other products. It reveals that Turkish concerns are investigating the possibilities of purchasing large quantities of sulphuric acid in Israel.
