Turkey, Africa’s New Favorite Wholesale Import Destination!

Turkey, Africa’s New Favorite Wholesale Import Destination!



As a Bridge between Asia and Europe, Turkey has always played a spectacular role in trade since the antiquity times. It has been the crossroad of the Silk Road, the most ancient network of trade routes in history. Actually, the Silk Road was not only a conduit of commerce but also a melting pot of different cultures. 



 Merchants were trading varieties of goods like silk, spices, jewels, paper, grain, porcelain, vegetables, and fruits. Those goods were transported from China and South East Asia through the Indian Ocean to Africa, India and the Near East (UNESCO, 2019).
