An official at the Turkish Embassy has said that Tanzanians can benefit from Turkey's lucrative cashew nut market, which is desperate for more supplies of the popular snack.
Mr Onur Tekyildiz, the Commercial Attache in the Embassy of Turkey, told the 'Daily News' in Dar es Salaam that Turkey was a huge and reliable market for cashew nuts where Tanzanian business people can benefit tremendously from cashew nut export.
"The Commercial department in the Embassy of Turkey will facilitate trade relations between the two countries (Tanzania and Turkey). Our doors are open to assist," he said.
Mr Tekyildiz observed that the trade volume between the two countries reached 150 million US dollars last year, since the establishment of the Embassy of Turkey, and the Turkish Airlines direct flights, have also facilitated the trade growth between the two countries.
