Foreign Investment in Turkey Over $165 Billion
The Minister of Science, Industry and Technology in the Turkish government, "Fikri Işık", said that foreign investment in various sectors in Turkey exceeded 165 billion US dollars by the end of 2015, and that the Turkish government is seeking to raise this number, through the facilities offered to foreign investors.
At the opening ceremony of Adel (Pen Manufacturing) Factory in Çayırova, Işık noted the following:
"We have witnessed new investments made one after another in our country. Foreign investment in Turkey since 2003 has been over $165 billion. Although we had two elections in Turkey and regional risks increased so much in 2015, foreign investment in Turkey was $16.5 billion. This figure clearly shows the confidence in Turkey."
