The gradual rise in trade between Turkey and Slovenia is the most important sign of the two countries’ cooperation, said Slovenia’s deputy prime minister on Tuesday.  

Speaking at the Turkey-Slovenia Business Forum organized by the Foreign Economic Relations Board of Turkey (DEIK) in Istanbul, Miro Cerar said the strategic cooperation between the two countries has grown since March 2011 thanks to friendly ties.

Taking advantage of common opportunities is a common goal of both countries, he said.

He highlighted that beside their current cooperation, Turkey and Slovenia can generate opportunities in third countries.

Also speaking at the forum, Mehmet Muharrem Kasapoglu, Turkey's youth and sports minister, stressed that cutting transit quotas between Turkey and Slovenia to reasonable levels would help galvanize bilateral trade.

"Undoubtedly, this momentum will add value to both our bilateral relations and Turkey's trade with the EU," he added.
