President Erdoğan Addresses at 9th Turkey Investment Conference in New York 

President Erdoğan was the guest of honor at the 9th Turkey Investment Conference organized by the Turkey-US Business Council (TAIK) in cooperation with Invest in Turkey.


Bringing together 400 top-tier corporate executives from the US and Turkey with ministerial delegations and senior government officials from both parties, the conference convened in New York on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly at the end of September. A primary goal of the conference was to provide a better understanding of the investment landscapes in the two countries.


During his address at the conference, President Erdoğan said that Turkey will continue to improve its investment environment and will never compromise on the principles of the free market economy. He also underlined that thanks to investor-friendly reforms, Turkey has achieved annual economic growth of 5.7 percent on average over the past 16 years.  International investors, keenly aware of Turkey's stability, played a key role in Turkey’s growth with investments of nearly USD 200 billion during that time. “The new presidential system has strengthened our ability to introduce reforms. From now on, Turkey will take decisions swiftly and without any bureaucratic obstacles,” he added.


The attendees also had the chance to listen to the Turkish Minister of Treasury and Finance Berat Albayrak’s interview with Erin McPike, Former Correspondent for CNN and NBC News and White House Correspondent for Independent Journal Review. Albayrak shared information about economic developments and Turkey’s newly-unveiled medium-term economic program. Also featured at the conference was the interview of Priya Basu, Head of the Women Entrepreneurs Finance Initiative (We-Fi) Secretariat in the Global Themes Vice-Presidency at the World Bank Group, with Turkish Minister of Trade Ruhsar Pekcan on Women’s Role in Business Life in Turkey.
