Liz Truss – 2020 Comments on the UK and Turkey Trade Agreement

The comments made by Liz Truss, the Secretary of State for International Trade, on 29 December 2020.

Today’s deal covers trade worth more than £18 billion, delivers vital certainty for business and supports thousands of jobs across the UK in the manufacturing, automotive and steel industries.

It paves the way for a new, more ambitious deal with Turkey in the near future, and is part of our plan to put the UK at the centre of a network of modern agreements with dynamic economies. More trade and investment will drive economic growth across our United Kingdom and help us build back stronger from Covid.
