Turkish Steel Sector and TATMETAL, a leading “flat steel producer”

Worldwide steel production in 2016 rose to 1 billion 629 million tons corresponding to a 0.8 percent increase as compared to 2015 whereas Turkey’s steel production increased by 5.2% in 2016 to 31,163 million tons. Based on the agreement signed between “the European Coal and Steel Community” (ECSC) and Turkey in 1996 customs taxes have been abolished in the bilateral steel trade. The agreement allows Turkey to sell iron and steel products to EU member states without customs duties. In accordance with the provisions of the ECSC agreement however, Turkey is not allowed to provide steel industry with any incentives. On to the contrary to expectations by many this has helped the Turkish Steel Industry to become even stronger.
