State Aid

Encouragement of exports is important for development of our export markets, increasing our share of world exports and enhancing the competitive power of our firms opening to the international markets.

On the subsidies system for exports implemented since 1980, Turkey is bringing in new regulations from time to time, depending on the needs of the day. DTM-Undersecretariat of Foreign Trade, striving to build up a subsidies system, also in conformity with the international treaties Turkey is party to, has effectuated one of its most important subsidies schemes under the title of “Export Oriented State Aid Decree” for the first time by the Official Gazette dated January 11, 1995, no. 22168. A series of amendments were made on the said decree over the years, the most recent one being the one in Official Gazette of January 29, 2000, no. 23948. Regulations will continue to be imposed depending on the circumstances and requirements of the day.
The basic purpose of export oriented state aid is to support both in production and also marketing stages, the export oriented activities of our exporter firms lead by SMSEs and to allow them to gain competitive power by helping them in elimination of problems they face in the international markets.

In implementation of any state aid, the final approval authority is DTM-Undersecretariat of Foreign Trade.
