Psychic distance has an important role in selecting the country markets and determining the suitable strategies for these markets. This study was conducted to examine the import and export activities between Turkey and Central Asian Turkish Republics and to undertand the psychic distance between these countries and Turkey. As a result of the investigation it was found that Azerbaijan is the closest and Turkmenistan is the farthest country to Turkey. It is believed that the study will contribute to the literature of the Turkish World by examining the commercial activities between Turkey and related countries from the perspective of psychic distance.
