2023 TARGET IS 10 BILLION DOLLARS
Mr. Zeki Sarıbekir, President of ASD Turkish Packaging Manufacturers Association made the following remarks in his statement: “The process of pandemic changed the way of doing business in the world. In this period when the effects of the pandemic have been decreasing and the world have been normalizing, the strong interest received by the fair we organized greatly pleased us. Following the pandemic, the interest in packaged products has increased considerably. We saw the effects of this at the fair as well. We are also experiencing the reflections of the increasing interest on exports. We predict that by the end of 2022 we will achieve an export value of 8 billion dollars as the packaging industry. Under normal conditions, we were expecting to achieve this figure in 2023. However, we will have reached the 2023 target one year earlier. We have already set our 2023 target as 10 billion dollars in export value. We continue our work towards this target. Eurasia Packaging Istanbul Fair, which will be held for the 28th time next year, will take place between October 11-14. We expect an even increased number of exhibitors from more countries to our fair. With our high-quality production and Türkiye's location, the packaging industry is the shining star of the world.”
