Interview with Gareth Jenkins – a senior associate fellow with the Silk Road Studies Program and Turkey Initiative with Jones Hopkins University.

Mr. Jenkins, thank you very much for joining us. So, what are your impressions of the visit?

They talked mostly about trade and I think they expressed a desire to boost it, bilateral trade at the moment is 24 billion and they are talking about quadrupling it to a hundred billion. But of course the problem of course concerns China most is that Turkey has got a huge imbalance in trade. So, I heard they discussed how to try to boost Turkish exports but things are going to be extremely difficult.
