SFSI attend Minister Creed Meeting with Turkish Minister for Agriculture

Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Michael Creed T.D. today continued his trade visit to Turkey which included a bilateral meeting with the Turkish Minister for Agriculture, His Excellency Ahmet Esref Fakibaba in Izmir, Turkey.

SFSI attended the meeting today between Minister Creed and the Turkish Minister for Agriculture, His Excellency Ahmet Esref Fakibaba in Izmir, Turkey.

Speaking after this meeting, Minister Creed said:

I was very pleased to have a detailed exchange of views with Minister Fakibaba on a range of issues of mutual importance. Ireland’s agri-food exports to Turkey amounted to around €70 million in 2017 and today’s visit to the International AgroExpo at the invitation of Minister Fakibaba provided the ideal opportunity to build further relationships with the Turkish authorities.”

“Live cattle exports were obviously a central part of our discussion”

Minister Creed continued. Ireland exported 30,000 cattle to Turkey last year, around 6% of their total import requirement.
