The Saudi General Authority for Statistics revealed an unexpected surprise regarding imports from Turkey after a boycott campaign in the Kingdom, calling for a ban on importing Turkish products.
Yesterday, Sunday, General Authority for Statistics data showed that Saudi Arabia’s imports from Turkey increased last August, compared to the previous month.
According to the authority’s data, the value of imports from Turkey increased to 833.6 million riyals (222.28 million dollars) last August, from 693.4 million last July.
This came despite the fact that Saudi Arabia launched a campaign recently to boycott Turkish products, after the escalation of tension with Ankara, due to several controversial issues, most notably the assassination of Jamal Khashoggi.
Sources confirmed that official bodies in Saudi Arabia are overseeing the so-called popular boycott campaign of Turkish goods, fearing that Riyadh’s official involvement would put it in trouble with the World Trade Organization.
