The Turkish Steel Exporters’ Association, the organisation responsible for all activities related to the export of iron and steel products in Turkey, is bringing a high-level delegation of prominent steel manufacturers and exporters to South Africa with the support of the Turkish Ministry of Economy, to explore areas of co-operation and new business prospects with local companies.

The delegation, comprised of 18 firms that operate in the steel industry sector in Turkey, will host a business briefing in Johannesburg on Monday.

The delegation will also hold meetings with key ministries charged with implementing infrastructure projects and regulating mining activities.

“By organising this trade delegation to South Africa, we are aiming to bring together South African and Turkish companies to explore areas of co-operation and new business prospects.

"Our goal is to create mutually beneficial and fruitful business relationships that will build a bridge between the two continents, to bring us even closer,” said Namık Ekinci, chairperson of the board of directors at the Turkish Steel Exporters’ Association.

The iron and steel industry is one of the leading sectors of the Turkish economy, having seen consistent growth since its establishment in the 1920s.

Turkey is a significant player in the global steel industry. Last year, that country was Europe’s second largest crude steel producer and ranked eighth in the world ranking of steel-producing countries.

Turkey is also one of the biggest exporters of steel products, holding the seventh place among the steel-exporting countries.

Turkish steel products are exported to more than 180 countries and to all regions of the world due to the high quality of its products and its competitive prices.

Turkey is also the world leader in the export of reinforcement bars used for construction.

The meetings will take place between 14:00 and 18:00 at the Hilton Hotel in Sandton, Johannesburg.
