Prime Minister Yıldırım heralds new chapter in US-Turkey relations 
11.11.2017

On the occasion of his official visit in the US, Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım and his delegation met with representatives of major US companies at a roundtable meeting in New York to discuss the current economic and commercial ties between the two countries. The meeting was held jointly by the Investment Support and Promotion Agency of Turkey (ISPAT), the Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges of Turkey (TOBB), and the US Chamber of Commerce.

 

Among the US participants were companies such as PepsiCo, UPS, Raytheon, Coca-Cola, GE Aviation, Credit Suisse, Accenture, Motorola, Amazon, Citi Group, Deutsche Bank, and IBM. Yıldırım briefed US companies on Turkey’s economic outlook, the ongoing reform process, and the significance Turkey attaches to FDI.

 

During his speech at the meeting, ISPAT President Arda Ermut said that supporting FDI from US – the largest source of FDI globally and also one of the largest sources for Turkey – is of paramount importance to ISPAT. Ermut emphasized that bilateral investments will undoubtedly reach new heights, thanks to the more than 1,700 US companies that operate in Turkey and that have invested more than USD 11 billion over the past 15 years.

 

Also accompanying Yıldırım were Deputy Prime Minister Mehmet Şimşek, Minister of Foreign Affairs Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, Energy Minister Berat Albayrak, Ak Party Parliamentary Group Deputy Chairman Mehmet Muş, Turkey's Ambassador to the UN Feridun Sinirlioğlu, Ambassador of Turkey to US Serdar Kılıç, and TOBB President Rifat Hisarcıklıoğlu.
