Issue on raw material imports yet to be solved: PAGEV

An update on a declaration dated February 17, 2015 regarding the supervision of imports for solid waste as a part of environmental protection by Turkey’s Ministry of Economy had caused significant number of companies to suffer from congestion at the borders and this issue was resolved as a result of some talks at the ministerial level by Turkish Plastics Industry Foundation (PAGEV) with a new adjustment effective as of March 4, 2015. However, according to a press release on the foundation’s website, PAGEV thinks that the aforementioned issue has not been completely solved yet.

In the press release, PAGEV stated that the issue has not been completely solved with the new regulation effective as of March 4 as the congestion at the borders gates moved to the relevant Provincial Directorates for Environment and Urban Planning. PAGEV also reported that the best solution would be to return to the declaration which was effective before the declaration dated February 17, 2015 in order to immediately pull waiting goods from customs and added that their request as to the return plan is unable to be met by the Ministry of Economy because of domestic producer Petkim’s case at the 10th Chamber of Council of State. In order to obtain results favorable to the market, PAGEV remarked that they would be joining the Ministry of Economy’s petition during the appellate procedure against Petkim’s case.

The recent congestion issues have significantly affected manufacturing activities in variety of sectors and have also resulted in hefty hikes in the prices of readily available goods inside the country.
