Department for International Trade (DIT) helps UK-based companies succeed in the global economy. We also help overseas companies bring their high-quality investment to the UK’s dynamic economy.

DIT offers expertise and contacts through its extensive network of specialists in the UK, and in British Embassies and other diplomatic offices around the world. We provide companies with the tools they require to be competitive on the world stage.

With trade and investment staff in Ankara, Istanbul and Izmir, there are a number of ways in which the DIT team in Turkey can help businesses.


DIT in Turkey helps companies in the UK increase their competitiveness through overseas trade with Turkey. Our Overseas Market Introduction Service (OMIS) is a flexible tool that puts UK companies in contact with DIT international trade advisors in the UK and commercial teams around the world.

We also offer professional, authoritative and personalised assistance to help companies in Turkey locate and expand in the UK. Our investment team works closely with colleagues in the English regions and the devolved administrations of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

We can also help you do business the Central Asia or south Caucasus regions, either directly or in collaboration with Turkish companies active in the regions.
