Since 2012, the business-to-consumer (B2C) e-commerce volume has increased by an average of more than 20 percent annually in Turkey. One of the most obvious fields that our digital age manifests itself in is; e-commerce, which continues to grow steadily.

Trade-Related Strategies Towards Digitization in Turkey
The adaptation to e-commerce is essential, and it is the policy agenda of the Turkish Ministry of Trade. Incorporating an enhanced level of digitalization is one of the key priorities of the Turkish ministry, and domestic commerce infrastructure to customs procedures is their primacy.
Digitization in a trade relationship with Customs Union partner, the EU, where Turkey exported about 84 billion dollars of products in 2018, needs cooperation since many documents need to be verified and recognized in cross-border customs.
By introducing the “MERSIS,” the Turkish ministry can now electronically monitor and manage all kinds of company procedures, from registration to successive legal performances. This network eases the formal workload of companies and enhances coordination among different ministries and branches of the government concerning domestic trade.
The need of the hour is to capitalize on such developments brought by technology and globalization, as Turkey is a substantial part of the world’s economy.
