Abstract. The purpose of the study was intended to understand whether the Russian Federation and Turkey are efficient in wheat and mandarin trade in comparison with other significant exporters.

The neighbourhood is an important aspect for developing and maintaining trade contacts. Within this perspective, the Russian Federation has been the main purchaser of Turkish fruits and vegetables. On the other hand, one of the major export products of Russia sold to Turkey is wheat in addition to energy and industrial inputs. Well knowing the importance of these product groups to both countries, it was intended to evaluate these countries rivalry in export markets concerning for their competitive countries.

Authors used methods that allow to directly or indirectly assessing the degree of export competitiveness of the state: methods of comparative advantage analysis (RCA) and comparative export indicators (CEP). Wheat export of Russia and mandarin export of Turkey were compared with competitive exporters via calculation and interpretation of trade indices from 2000 to 2019.

The findings indicated that Russian exports are superior to their competitors when some years were set apart. The specific overriding country has been Kazakhstan for Russian wheat, even if the productive capacities cannot be compared. Besides, Turkey ranks second after Spain for mandarin exports due to the comparative advantages. However, assessment of the findings in details indicated that there is a need to develop supporting policy and tools for two cases to increase the profitability and efficiency of the export. This is due to lower per-unit export gains and should be intervened to improve and strengthen the countries’ trade positions.
