Reminding that the aquaculture and animal products sector reached its export target of 2.5 billion dollars for 2023 by the end of 2020 and increased its 2023 target to 3.5 billion dollars, Girit said, “Eggs, honey and dairy products for breakfast, chicken for lunch and dinner for dinner. We offer the fish option. That’s why we were less affected by the pandemic process than other sectors. We have the potential to carry our exports, which was 2 billion 450 million dollars in 2020, to 3 billion 250 million dollars by the end of 2021. We believe that with the rise in exports we will realize in 2022 and 2023, we will easily achieve the 3.5 billion dollars export target that we set for the end of 2023.”
