Celal Kadooğlu, President of the Southeastern Anatolian Cereals, Pulses, Oilseeds and Products Exporters' Association, stated that the opening of the grain corridor will make it easy for both Turkey and the whole world.
The grain and pulses industry in the Southeast Anatolia Region welcomed the signing of the "Safe Transportation of Grain and Foodstuffs Ukrainian Ports Document" among Turkey, Russia, Ukraine and the United Nations (UN) for the export of Ukrainian grain over the Black Sea.
Kadooğlu pointed out that the products of Turkish companies are also suspended in Ukraine and that they will be brought to the country thanks to this agreement. "Bringing the said products to Turkey in a short time is of great importance for the Turkish food industry. There are grain products that our pasta, flour, feed and other food producer and exporter companies operating in our region have made import agreements both in Ukraine and on the ships that are still suspended in Ukrainian ports. These companies import these products to Turkey within the scope of internal transactions, process and export them. The agreement made will not only mak it easier for all producer and exporters of our country, but will also play an important role in increasing our country's exports,” he said.
Kadooğlu thanked those who contributed, especially President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who assumed the leadership role in reaching the agreement and brought the UN, Ukraine and Russia together at the same table.
