MALATYA. After the high export prices had fallen in recent weeks to the relief of buyers, a new upward trend is now evident. Even the devaluation of the Turkish lira cannot prevent this.

Exports are very satisfactory

Turkish exporters continue to be very satisfied with exports. Last week, 2,503 mt of dried apricots and apricot products were shipped overseas, compared to only 1,710 mt in the same week last year. Total exports since the beginning of the season thus amount to 39,081 mt, which is almost 3,000 mt more than the 36,109 mt exported in the same period last year.
