Turkey to change ‘Made in Turkey’ logo

The Turkish Exporters Assembly has rolled up its sleeves to switch to a “Made in Türkiye” logo instead of “Made in Turkey” for goods produced in the country, Sabah daily reported on Wednesday.

The assembly started on its bid to change the logo after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan criticised the “Made in Turkey” logo used in the prototype of the country’s first domestically built car unveiled last month.

“The whole world knows the name Türkiye, but we write ‘Made in Turkey’ on exported goods. From now on we should put our name,” İsmail Gülle, the head of the exporters assembly, told Sabah. 

The assembly has prepared a draft law to introduce the new logo that will be presented to Trade Minister Ruhsar Pekcan, Sabah said.
