Indonesia plans to export 3.87 billion USD in goods to Turkey in 2019, up 2.7 times the 2014 figure of 1.45 billion USD, according to the country’s Ministry of Trade.

Among the export products with the highest potential to increase to Turkey are textiles and food—particularly halal food for Muslims—and Muslim fashion items.

Turkey is currently the 23rd largest destination of Indonesian exports, and Indonesia is the 26th largest supplier to Turkey.

Trade between the two countries reached 2.47 billion USD in 2014 with annual average growth rate of 16.6 percent from 2010 to 2014.

Major Indonesian exports to Turkey include palm oil, furniture and electronic components.

Imports, valued at 1.03 billion USD, consisted of synthetic yarn, tobacco, wheat, chemical, marble and tractors.-VNA
