This period, as in all areas of the economy, shaped the road map of exports. Companies that started the process of digitalization in the new era became involved in the international trade environment. In this process, it became clear how essential it is to adapt to the e-export and e-commerce movement. In order to make the growth trend caught in exports sustainable, we need to turn to more e-export activities. Because we see very clearly that every step taken towards e-export is paid off.”
