On April 5, Investment Office and AmCham Turkey co-hosted the first series of webinars entitled “GVC Talks-Investment Perspective" that brings together industry experts and practitioners to discuss the transformation of GVCs. Among the attendees of the webinar were Deputy Minister of Industry and Technology Çetin Ali Dönmez; Deputy Chair of AmCham Turkey Canan Özsoy and Deputy GM of Ford Otosan Dave Johnston.
Investment Office Vice President Ahmet İhsan Erdem offered insights into Turkey's investment climate in the changing world to the participants. “A task force has been established with the participation of relevant ministries, agencies, and private sector representatives in order to prepare Turkey's investment climate for the changing global environment. Furthermore, the recent reform package has also included exclusive reform and policy actions to increase Turkey's participation in GVCs," said Erdem.
“Our focus is now more on developing a stronger domestic industrial clustering to build linkages, resilience, and a dynamic productive capacity in line with companies' regionalization and diversification strategies," he added.
