İhracat Stratejik Planı (ExportStrategy P.) (2004-2006)

Major structural problems:

  • Regional and sectoral confinement in exports (ürün ve pazar çeşitliliği)

  • Lack of compatibility of export structure with the international trade trends and developments, and

  • Instability in the rate of export growth.

  • General Objectives:

    • “building up of an export structure conducive towards sustainable export increase”

    • Objectives:

      • To ensure promotion and marketing of high quality Turkish products in foreign market

      • To ensure information relevant for exporters (Market Access)

      • To provide the exporters with inputs at internationally competitive prices

      • To improve exporters’ market access opportunities… within the framework of bilateral and multilateral trade relations

      • Todevelopbetter coordination among the public and private sectors and non-governmental organizations

  • Dtm stratejik plan uft strategic plan 2009 2013

    • Main Objectives:

      • Transformation towards an export structure with high value-added products based on innovation and R & D

      • Increasing regional and sectoral diversification in line with trends in world trade, access to new markets

      • Providing easier access to raw materials intermediary goods

      • Developing trade defense instruments against injuring or threatening imports

    Export oriented production strategy

    • Switchingtohighvalue-addedgoods in low-techsectors;

    • Switchingtohighvalue-addedgoods in medium-lowtechsectors, andincreasingproduction;

    • Increasingproductionlevels in medium-hightechsectors;

    • New investments in high-techsectors.

    Essential points in export strategy

    What kind of trade strategy
    What kind of trade strategy? ANALİZİ, İSO (2010)

    • Tradestrategyshould not be confinedtomanufacturingsectoronly,

    • Tradestrategyshould not be confinedtoexportsonly

    • Tradestrategy is not only market access, but traderules

    • Tradestrategy is not onlyabouttradeonly, but relevantpolicyareas

    A critic of turkey s export strategy
    A critic of Turkey’s ANALİZİ, İSO (2010)export strategy

    • Thenewtradeagenda is devotedtoexportpolicy, withoutparticularattentiontoimports (whatshould be Turkey’snewimportpolicy?)

    • Itfocuses on market accesstoothermarketswithoutopeningitsown. ‘But onemaindriver of growth is imports’

    • Verticalintegrationin global tradeandproductionpatternsareneglected (reducingthe rate of intermediarygoods/inputs in exports is soeasy?) Whichpart of value-addedchainshouldTurkeypositionitself?

    • It is mainlyconfinedtomanufacturing, withlittleattentiontootherareas (services, investments, agriculture, development…)

    • Tradepolicy is not onlyconfinedtotradeonly, but trade-relatedissues(environment, technicalstandards, governmentprocurement, investments, labourissues, foodsecurity…)

    Import policy
    Import policy: ANALİZİ, İSO (2010)

    • Heavyuse of anti-dumpingandsafeguards is not compatiblewith liberal tradepolicy!

    • Trade-offbetweenexport-oriented market accessstrategyin medium-to-hightechnologysectors; andhighprotection in imports in low-to-mediumtechnology (i.e. textiles-clothing, footwear, basemetals) sectors!

      • The nominal protectionrates (NPR) arehigh in sectorslike:

        8.93 percent in textiles; 8.03 percent in footwear; 5.36 percent in basemetals; 6.36 percent in transport equipment; and 5.41 percent in chemicals.

    • Loweringtariffs on essentialinputs as demandedbydomesticproducers, is not alwayspossibleduetohigherrates in CCT of the EU (CustomsUnion). Whatto do?

    Trade strategy should consider 1

    • whetherTurkey is a developingcountrywithlow-to-mediumtechgoods; or a developedcountryorientedtowardsvalue-added, high-techproducts, brandedproductsbased on R & D andinnovation? AVOID "middle-income trap"

    • Trade in servicesnot to be neglected in tradepolicy, without it thelattercannot be comprehensivefor a countrytobecome10th biggesteconomy !!

    • HowtomergebilateralinvestmentagreementswithFTAs? (India, Korea, Canada, so on)

    • Goodcoordination of public-privaterelationship (state - business, NGOs, universities)

    • Moreactiveinvolvement of privateparties in FTA and WTO process

    Trade policy and export diversification
    Trade ANALİZİ, İSO (2010)policyandexportdiversification

    • Tariff removal has decreasing returns in terms of export diversification. A la Ricardian model, thatpreciselypredicts that a reduction in trade barriers leads to an increased range of exported goods (seeDornbusch et al., 1977, andVenables, 2003).

    • Getting better access to a foreign market through tariff cuts helps to increase the extensivemargin of exports, but up to a certain point. When tariffs are low enough, other factors becomemore important to push diversification further.

    • These factors may include, among others,physical infrastructure, which is a key determinant of transport costs; institutional infrastructure related to trade facilitation (e.g., customs); logistics; and factorendowments determining the ability of the country to be active in certain sectors (e.g., humancapital in industries producing high tech or differentiated goods).
