    Summary of the political and economic news in the Turkish press this morning.

    [01] FOREIGN TRADE ATTACK FROM CEM

    Foreign Minister Ismail Cem has begun initiatives to prove his claim that foreign policy should be supported by a strong economy. With that in mind, he has requested that Turkish Trade Centers should be opened major trade areas around the world. Within this framework feasibility studies have been completed on the opening of Turkish Trade Centers in New York, Moscow, Frankfurt and Shanghai. It is aimed to increase exports in these centres and to improve local relations with Turkish businessmen operating in those cities.

    Sending circulars to Turkish ambassadors abroad, Ismail Cem has asked them to prepare feasibility reports on how to increase trade and economic relations between Turkey and the country to which they have been appointed. He also wants them to improve contacts with Turkish businessmen and give details about their trade opportunities to Ankara. /Hurriyet/

    [02] TURKEY, TURCO-GREEK EXPERTS COMMĘTTEE NO LONGER TIED TO EU

    The Turkish members of the Turco-Greek Experts Committee have sent a note to the Greek side saying that the meetings of the committee can no longer be held within the framework of the European Union's (EU) sphere of operations. The note stated that the reason for this was the Turkish government's decision to halt any discussion of Turco-Greek relations with the EU, made in the wake of the Unions exclusion of Turkey from the list of full membership candidates - a move in which Greece was a major collaborator.

    From now on the process of dialogue will be continued on the basis of meetings between the two countries' ambassadors, according to the note, signed by experts Sukru Elekdag and Fuat Bilge. /Milliyet/

    [03] KARADAYI'S NEW YEAR MESSAGE

He added that the Turkish Armed Forces were against any threat, including terrorism, which aimed to divide the country. /Milliyet-Sabah/

    [06] NEW YEAR MESSAGE FROM PRIME MINISTER YILMAZ
