some 550,000 Turkish workers abroad, principally in West Germany and other
EC countries. Their currency remittances during 1972 were $750 million, an
increase of 50% compared with the 1971 remittances. 
 In March 1972 a decree was issued, revising and extending duty-free importation
of equipment to be used in specified investment fields and on projects approved
by the Ministry of Industry. The provisions of this 
decree reportedly apply equally to approved domestic and foreign investments.
 Maden Tetkik ye Arama Enstitususu (MTA), the Mineral Research and Exploration
Institute of Turkey, continued exploration and mapping during the year. During
the year MTA prepared maps of various scales on phosphate, pyrite, and chromite
deposits for public distribution.
