President Erdoğan Meets Executives of US Companies in Turkey 
21.09.2018

On September 19, President Erdoğan received Turkish executives of 25 US companies at the Presidential Complex in Ankara. The executives came from various sectors such as finance, ICT, pharmaceuticals and medical devices, chemicals, agri-food, and insurance. Among the companies represented were Boeing, Citibank, Coca-Cola, Dow Chemical, General Electric, Google, Microsoft, and Pfizer.

 

During the meeting, which was organized by the Presidency of the Republic of Turkey Investment Office in cooperation with the American Business Forum in Turkey (AmCham/ABFT) and the International Investors Association (YASED), President Erdoğan asked each of the executives to express their opinions about Turkey’s current investment environment and their expectations from the government.

 

"Turkey's strategic cooperation with the US will be further strengthened through investment and trade. We will not compromise on free market principles and we will continue to take every step so that businesses will not be harmed by trade measures
vis-a-vis US tariffs," said Erdoğan. He made it clear that Turkey will continue to be proactive in implementing regulations, taking into consideration the needs of industry and the everchanging conditions in the business environment. He stated that Turkey has always welcomed international investments and will continue doing so.

 

Erdoğan also extended his support to organizing future business workshops under the coordination of the Investment Office. Industry and Technology Minister Mustafa Varank, Trade Minister Ruhsar Pekcan and AK Party Deputy Chairman Lütfi Elvan were also present at the meeting, which convened prior to Erdoğan’s scheduled visit to US in late September.
