AmCham Turkey / ABFT Holds 15th General Assembly Meeting 

American Business Forum in Turkey - AmCham Turkey held its 15th General Assembly Meeting on March 15, 2019, in Istanbul.


Speaking at the meeting, Investment Office President Arda Ermut underlined that the needs and priorities of Turkey and the US overlap significantly in the economic and commercial fields. “Investment Office - the only authorized authority in Turkey in terms of FDI - has always bestowed a special priority on the United States, and it continues to do so. Since 2002, we have attracted more than USD 11.8 billion in FDI made by more than 1,800 US companies operating in Turkey. We see room for growth in this figure because the United States is one of the top FDI sources in the world. For this reason, the United States is one of the countries most visited by the Investment Office,” said Ermut.


The CEO of Citibank Turkey, Serra Akçaoğlu, was reelected as the Chairperson of AmCham Turkey during the General Assembly meeting. AmCham Turkey’s 110 member companies employ 90,000 people in Turkey and provide a value-added of USD 54 billion for the Turkish economy.


Previously in September 2018, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan received representatives of the US companies in Turkey along with board members of AmCham Turkey/ABFT at a roundtable meeting  at the Presidential Complex in Ankara.
