AYDIN. Turkey's dried fig exporters are busy completing shipments before Christmas. The TMO intends to become active. Global production figures are also not exactly encouraging.

Concerns over subdued demand

Fears also prevail that high prices and the coronavirus crisis will put off buyers.

Turkey has shipped 20,461 mt of dried figs and dried fig products overseas since the start of the season, down 1,238 mt or 6% on the same period last year. The main export destinations are Germany (-10% to 2,889 mt), the US (+37%
