Türkiye has attracted over $250 billion in foreign direct investments (FDI) since 2003, marking a significant increase in international capital inflow, according to Ahmet Burak Dağlıoğlu, the head of the Presidency's Investment Office.
This achievement is attributed to structural reforms and investment targets that have drawn the attention of global investors. Dağlıoğlu highlighted the pivotal role of political stability since 2003 in fostering international investments. He also pointed out that the majority of FDI in Türkiye comes from Europe, emphasizing the country's pivotal role as an alternative production hub for Asian countries and its proximity to European markets.
Dağlıoğlu stated that direct investments are crucial for Türkiye's aim to become one of the world's top ten economies, focusing on addressing the current account deficit, employment creation, and technological transformation.
Türkiye's commitment to these goals is an attractive prospect for international investors, especially given the country's growth trajectory and export-focused economy. Sustainability, digitalization, and geopolitical developments have reshaped the global supply chain, and Dağlıoğlu underlined the importance of Türkiye's strategic location, infrastructure investment, and green policies in enabling its integration into the global supply chain.
Furthermore, the Investment Office is actively promoting sustainable investments, and Türkiye's strong political leadership and rapid adaptation to global developments have been crucial in shaping the investment landscape.
The office has also organized various events to mark the 100th anniversary of the Turkish Republic, with plans to host additional events in European and Gulf countries in the near future.
