Armenia’s Economy Ministry wants to extend ban on Turkish imports

Armenia's Economy Minister Vahan Kerobyan will ask the government to extend the ban on imports of Turkish goods. The six-month ban was imposed on January 1, 2021, only to be extended until January 1, 2022.

According to government data, Armenia imported $268 million worth of Turkish-manufactured products in 2019 and $178 million worth of Turkish goods in January-October 2020, 15% down YoY. Among these were $10.3 million worth citrus fruit.

The ban was in retaliation to Turkey's participation and assistance to Azerbaijan in the 44-day war unleashed against Artsakh(Nagorno-Karabakh) in autumn 2020. The ban on import of Turkish goods to Armenia applies not only to legal entities but also to goods of personal use of individuals arriving in Armenia.
