The Impact of Trade Agreements Between Turkey and Other Countries on The Real Estate Sector
With its strategic location in the world, Turkey has an important place in international trade. With the International Free Trade Agreements to which Turkey is a party, the international trade volume is growing day by day. The high level of liberalization of international trade by the World Trade Organization was also insufficient. This liberalization, multilateral trading system, which is insufficient in today's conditions, has been insufficient to provide market access. For this reason, countries tend to join bilateral or regional free trade agreements. As a result of this trend, there are approximately 400 “Free Trade Agreements” reported to the World Trade Organization.
Turkey has been a member of the World Trade Organization since 1995. In addition to this membership, it is also a member of organizations such as the Economic Cooperation Organization, the United Nations Trade Development Association, the Black Sea Economic Cooperation Organization, the World Customs Organization, the International Chamber of Commerce, and the D-8. Turkey has become a party to many free trade agreements by participating in these associations or making bilateral agreements. It uses the privilege of its important position and political power in the international arena.
Turkey's Trade Partnerships
- Customs Union Agreement
Turkey carries out its commercial activities subject to the Customs Union Agreement with the European Union, which entered into force in 1995. In addition, Turkey's accession negotiations to the European Union continue. The Customs Union Agreement with the European Union covers all industrial products but does not refer to agriculture, services, or public procurement. However, agricultural products have some privileges through bilateral trade agreements, as in steel and coal products. Products within the scope of the Customs Union envisage that Turkey will comply with "European Union Legislation" in various basic internal market areas, especially industrial standards.
- Europe – Mediterranean Trade Partnership
Turkey is also a member of the Europe-Mediterranean trade partnership. It makes free trade agreements with all Mediterranean countries to create a Europe-Mediterranean free trade area. This commercial partnership aims to remove trade and investment barriers between the European Union and Southern Mediterranean countries. The Euro-Mediterranean Partnership Agreements are in force with most of the partners except Libya and Syria.
- Trade Relations with the USA
Another country with which Turkey has an international free trade agreement is the United States. In 1996, a Tax Agreement was signed and put into effect between Turkey and the United States of America, covering the relevant protocols with the aim of "Avoiding Double Taxation" and "Preventing Financial Smuggling in Terms of Income Taxes".
- Free Trade Agreement between Turkey and UK
Turkey signed a Free Trade Agreement with the UK, which is the second country with which it trades the most. Britain, which left the European Union with the Brexit process, also left the Customs Union as of January 1, 2021. With this development, which led to the need to re-determine the trade regime between Turkey and England, a critical agreement was signed to continue trade without customs duty. This agreement signed by the UK with Turkey became the fifth largest agreement after the agreements made by the country with Japan, Canada, Switzerland, and Norway.
With the Free Trade Agreement signed between Turkey and England;
- Customs taxes on industrial products have been reset.
- Existing concessions with the EU in agriculture and processed agricultural products were scaled and reflected in new trade relations.
- With a provision added to the agreement, it was agreed that the scope of the Free Trade Agreement will be expanded to include areas such as services, investments, and advanced agricultural concessions.
