The world is talking about England and whether it can leave the European Union by agreement. It seems that this separation will be painful. England could have a dissolution process in the long run. If there's a deal, that'll be extended. Otherwise, the sounds of separation begin to be spoken on the British Isle.
Imagine that post-separation crossings between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland will be made by Visa. There will be boundaries. This could go as far as Northern Ireland's public vote for independence or even unification with Ireland. This would reignite the independence of Wales and Scotland. England does not seem to have done well with exiting the European Union. In England, where the older population is majority, the Brexit process began with a popular vote. But the young population did not want to leave the EU.
For England, Sterling is very important. The depreciation of Sterling has caused governments to lose out. That's why the job of prime ministers is so difficult. England, which holds the world's production, has managed to determine the market prices for products it has not produced for years. England holds the pulse of production with the product exchanges she founded. London, which is also the financial center of the world, is also a city where world political decisions are made. In a sense, Turkey's trade agreement with the England will also increase trade with the world. It would be appropriate for the government to pay special attention to this issue and already determine policies on this issue. Trade always determines world politics. For this, Turkey must determine its strategy as soon as possible.
While all these developments were taking place, an important meeting was held on the digital platform. British relations with Turkey are on the table. DFDS, one of the leading European companies in the field of maritime and logistics, held a meeting on the impact of the process on Turkey after the UK's decision to leave the European Union.
Academician and journalist-writer Soli Özel, SGS TransitNet General Manager Mine Kaya, Ünsped general manager Rıza Mehmet Korkmaz attended the search meeting where trade between Turkey and the England was especially discussed in this process. Jan Berslen Devrim, Senior Director of Information Technology at DFDS's Mediterranean Business Unit, told at the meeting works carried out by DFDS within the scope of Brexit.
I got you a few briefs from the panel. The UK is our second largest export market after Germany. Even if there is no agreement for Turkey, opportunities may arise in the field of Agriculture in parallel with Brexit with the UK, which is an annual importer of $ 14.4 billion in agricultural products.
In this process, companies having strong infrastructure in the field of technology and innovation in logistics will capture an advantage. Logistics centers of Turkey will be advantageous if logistics centers are correctly positioned, and opportunities in the food sector can be achieved.
About DFDS 'services, Jan Berslen Devrim said that: "our services are open to all in the UK's crossings between the European Union. We also have mobile applications for our drivers. Our drivers who use these applications will have a huge advantage.” DFDS services, especially at customs gates, provide facilities to prevent crowd of thousands of people.
