HTA horticulture head Raoul Curtis-Machin said: "The industry is delighted that the UK government has given the official diplomatic go-ahead for the industry to design, build and promote a garden at the Antalya expo. The co-funding and support offered by the Antalya Expo organisers will enable us to showcase UK skills, products and creative talent on a global stage.
"The HTA will be the lead organiser for this, as they are the lead on the commercial section of the roundtable action plan."
AIPH secretary general Tim Briercliffe said: "To participate in an A1 Expo you need government approval and Government has given that approval. Now it depends on the industry to lead the project, pull together a team and deliver it.
