The signing ceremony, involving the trade ministers of both countries, was held in Istanbul and included provisions for hosting a trade and investment summit, expediting economic collaboration, and expanding cooperative efforts in third countries.

Omer Bolat, the Turkish trade minister, revealed plans for the upcoming trade and investment summit to be organized in Tokyo.
