Southeastern Turkey becoming an investor magnet

Dunya - Turkey’s Southeastern Anatolia region is rapidly turning into a production hub for companies seeking to reach the neighboring markets.

Domestic and foreign companies, including a Greek plastics producer and a British packaging firm, are flocking to Organized Industrial Zones (OIZ) in the region for easy-access to the developing Iraqi, Iranian and Syrian markets. Turkey’s policy of visa-free travel, combined with government incentives and available labor force, has transformed the region into a potential production base for producers, even leading to a shortage of space in OIZs in the region’s major cities like Diyarbakir and Mardin.
