Trade volume between Egypt and Turkey has risen by three percent, reaching around $3.457 billion in the first 10 months of 2017, from $3.349 billion last year. Egypt’s exports to Turkey increased by 44.2 percent to $1.657 billion in the January-October 2017 period, compared to$1.149 billion last year, Egyptian Industry and Trade Minister Tarek Qabil said Saturday. Qabil made his remarks after receiving a report on the intra-trade activity indicators between the two countries from the Head of Commercial Representation Office in Istanbul. “Egyptian imports from Turkey fell by 18.7 percent during the first ten months of the current year, registering $1.8 billion, compared to about $2.2 billion during the same period last year,” the Egyptian minister added. The significant increase was due to a 299.5 percent surge in the Egyptian methanol exports to Turkey, reaching around $93.5 million at the end of October, compared with $23.4 million, said Ahmed Antar, head of Egypt's Commercial Service Office (ECS). “Egyptian exports of urea fertilizers reached about $282 million against $114 million, with a 145.6 percent rise,” Antar stated, referring that denim cloth exports also jumped 57.8 percent to $66.8 million from $42.3 million.

Airbus said Friday it has now confirmed its mammoth $49.5 billion order to supply 430 aircraft to U.S. private equity fund Indigo Partners. Veteran airline investor Bill Franke of Indigo Partners signed the preliminary order at the Dubai Airshow in November which will trigger delivery of 274 A320neos and 156 A321neos. The deal is Airbus' largest ever single order and provides aircraft for Wizz Air, Frontier Airlines, Jetsmart and Mexico's Volaris. Indigo has stakes in all ‎four airlines. Bill Franke, managing partner of Indigo Partners, said in a statement Thursday that the deal would help give customers of the ultra-low cost carriers "even more value". The list price of the aircraft is $49.5 billion but Airbus has previously confirmed that the private equity firm would not pay that price with the final cost not being revealed. Franke, who secured financing to conduct the deal on a sale and lease-back basis, said engine selections will be made at a later date. In a separate deal announced Friday, Airbus has revealed that China Aircraft Leasing (CALC) has signed up to buy 50 A320neos in a deal worth $5.42 billion at list prices. The European plane maker said the latest order brings CALC's total order book with Airbus up to around 200 single-aisle aircraft. CALC is currently the largest aircraft operating lessor in China and is listed on the main board of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. Chinese companies have placed huge aircraft orders in the past year. During a visit by Chinese President Xi Jinping to Germany in July, Airbus announced a $22 billion order to supply 140 planes. More»

Turkey and Russia signed on Friday an accord for Moscow to supply Ankara with S-400 surface-to-air missile batteries, Turkish authorities announced, finalizing a deal set to deepen military ties between NATO member Turkey and the Kremlin. The S-400 deal, reportedly worth some $2.5 billion and in the works for more than a year, has worried the West because the system cannot be integrated into NATO's military architecture. As part of NATO's collective defense pledge, the allies integrate their ships, planes and weapons systems to make them work together, as well as sharing command across the alliance. The accord is the latest in a series of moves by Ankara to boost its defense capabilities as it faces threats from Kurdish and Islamist militants at home and conflicts across its borders in Syria and Iraq. In a statement late on Friday, Turkey's Undersecretariat for Defence Industries (SSM) said that Moscow would supply the S-400 missile batteries to Ankara in an initial delivery planned for the first quarter of 2020. On Wednesday, Sergei Chemezov, head of the Russian state conglomerate Rostec, told the Kommersant daily that Russia would supply Turkey with four batteries of S-400s under the deal. However, the SSM said Turkey would buy two S-400 batteries from Russia under the agreement, with one being optional, and added the systems would be used and managed "independently" by Turkish personnel, rather than Russian advisors. It said the Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) would have full control over the systems, and added that the accord signed earlier on Friday included clauses on cooperation for technologic gains and joint development. Turkey's purchase of the systems has unnerved NATO member countries, who are already wary of Moscow's military presence in the Middle East, as the system is incompatible with the alliance's systems. NATO officials have warned Turkey about unspecified consequences of purchasing the S-400, but Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan has said ties with NATO remain strong. Chezmezov said Moscow was expected to begin the first deliveries in March 2020 and that Turkey was the first NATO member state to acquire the advanced S-400 missile system. Earlier on Friday, Turkish newspapers cited Erdogan as saying Turkey would borrow in the Russian currency in a loan deal under the accord. Borrowing "in rubles" "We will not borrow in dollars in this loan, we will borrow in rubles," Hurriyet newspaper quoted Erdogan as telling reporters on his plane, returning from a trip to Africa. According to Chemezov, Turkey would pay 45 percent of the cost of the agreement up front, with Russia providing loans to cover the remaining 55 percent. The Russian Finance Ministry will finance a deal from the state treasury, while Russian banks will take part solely in the transfer of funds in the deal, a Russian banking source said. Relations between Moscow and Ankara deteriorated sharply in 2015 after Turkey shot down a Russian air force jet that it said had crossed into Turkish airspace, but they have since repaired ties despite having backed different sides in the Syrian war. They are now cooperating on Syrian peace efforts as well as projects in the defense industry and energy sectors. While pushing ahead with the S-400 project, Ankara has sought to secure defense deals with other countries as well. In November, Turkey signed a letter of intent with France and Italy to strengthen cooperation on joint defense projects. As a first step, the Franco-Italian EUROSAM consortium and Turkish companies will look into a system based on the SAMP-T missile systems. Turkey has also invested heavily in the development of its domestic defense industry, with projects encompassing areas including combat helicopters, tanks, drones and warships. More»
