Social inclusion, sustainable development, environmental risks, and urban planning are at the top of its agenda. There is still an opportunity to invest during its dramatic development to be part of the wave that enters its new urbanization era.
Early investments in Turkey’s urbanization movement have been highly lucrative, especially in places like Gaziantep, Antalya, and Adana. Early investors in the private sector and those who invested at the cusp of urbanization have seen significant market gains from this growth.
The Turkish government has created accessible market entry points for those who want to capitalize on their country’s economic growth and development. With its large domestic market, young population, skilled labor force, strategic location, governmental incentives on offer, low tax rates, and rapidly growing diverse sectors monetarizing on the growth for the betterment of the country is a savvy decision.
