Evaluation Note/ N. Murat Ersavcı 12/05/2019 -     Everyone seems to agree that the time has come to expand the Customs Union between Turkey and the European Union.

That is why it was modelled on the ‘Zollverein’, a 19th century customs union between German states. Turkey had – and still has – no objection to that.
