The Joint Economic and Trade Commission was one of the largest meetings held by Turkish and German officials and represented one of the most important moments of 2018, as the two countries have decided to boost economic relations in terms of trade and several joint projects, among which a few related to the energy industry.
One of the key discussion points was related to more investments of German companies in Turkey, as well as welcoming more Turkish companies in Germany. Several joint ventures will also be created and partnerships between German and Turkish companies would lead to projects in third countries.

Other cooperation agreements target new renewable energy, tourism and infrastructure projects.
The two government also plan on creating a joint trade commission with the purpose of supporting SMEs which are very important for both economies. In Turkey, SMEs are the most important contributors to the economy.
