Grain&Maritime Days in Istanbul 2022

Why Istanbul?
Istanbul is the largest commercial, economic, port and cultural center of Turkey. Favorable geographical position in two parts of the world – Europe and Asia as well as on the shores of the Bosphorus makes the city one of the largest hubs between the Black and Mediterranean Seas. There are three large international ports in Istanbul, which allow the city to be considered a business Mecca.

  • Turkey is one of the three largest global importers of grains (wheat, barley)
  • As a significant importer of raw materials, Turkey is also a major exporter of value-added products, which is an example of a successful strategy for the development of the agricultural sector
  • It is the biggest supplier of technologies and equipment for storing and processing of agricultural crops
  • Turkey has long-term trade relations with Ukraine and Russia, which are important suppliers of agricultural raw materials to the country
  • In 2021, Turkey increased import of Ukrainian grains and by-products by nearly 4 times
  • In monetary terms, the supply of Ukrainian grains and oilseeds as well as by-products reached almost 1 bln USD in 2021 (+32% y/y)
  • In the first half of 2021/22 MY, Turkey became the leader among importers of such Ukrainian products as soybean, sunflower seed, rye, sorghum, peas and bran, and took the second place in the ranking after China as a buyer of sunflower meal and barley
  • For 10 months of 2021, Turkey imported 7.9 mln tonnes of the main types of agricultural products from Russia for a total of 2.7 bln USD. Russia is a leading supplier of wheat, corn, rapeseed, sunflower seed, sunflower oil and sunflower meal to Turkey
  • Kazakhstan is also increasing supplies of agricultural products to Turkey. In 2021, the return of the sale of this group of goods reached 35 mln USD, up 4.3 times y/y. Additionally, supplies of grain and by-products from Kazakhstan to Turkey increased by 5.8 times
