In recent years, the economic ties between Turkey and China have been growing. By 2023, China stands as Turkey's largest trading partner in Asia and its second-largest import partner. Notably, Turkey actively participates in the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), with BRI investments totaling $4 billion as of summer 2022, contributing to approximately 1.3 percent of the total BRI investments worldwide.

Overview of China-Turkey Trade Dynamics

Bilateral trade between China and Turkey has experienced remarkable growth, witnessing a doubling of imports from China between 2019 and 2022. The United Nations COMTRADE database reports that Turkey's imports from China in 2022 reached $41.35 billion.

Despite the increase in import duties in the country, trade between China and Turkey continued to develop. In October 2023 alone, China exported goods worth $2.83 billion to Turkey, showcasing the resilience of the trade relationship. The top exports during this period included telephones, computers, nitrogenous fertilizers, non-retail synthetic filament yarn, and polycarboxylic acids.

The economic collaboration between China and Turkey received a significant boost with the signing of the Belt and Road Memorandum of Understanding. Chinese companies have since invested over $3 billion in Turkey, demonstrating a diversified interest in sectors such as finance, manufacturing, energy, electronics, and infrastructure. This investment trend continues to rise, with Turkey now hosting more than 1,200 Chinese companies.

Today it continues to provide export insurance for Chinese companies engaged in supplying goods, technology, and services to many countries, including Turkey.

How Short-Term Credit Insurance Benefits Turkey-Based Companies

Short-term credit insurance brings various advantages to companies in Turkey. The most significant benefit is that, upon approval for a credit limit with a Chinese supplier, importers can delay payments and settle them once the agreed-upon deferral period concludes. The eligibility for deferred payment terms depends on the approval of a credit limit.

How to Secure a Sinosure Credit Limit for Turkish Importers

Credit limits issued by Sinosure for contracts with Chinese suppliers represent the maximum trade loans available under the Sinosure insurance agreement. For Turkish companies seeking a credit limit, the process involves undergoing evaluation and a credit investigation. This leads to the assignment of a credit rating and the acquisition of a credit limit, which is then coordinated with the supplier.
