Sabah – Continuing its non-stop growth, the Turkish economy has attracted the attention of investors from the USA. 17 leading global companies operating in the field of medical technology and healthcare are visiting Turkey this week with Arun Kumar, the US Deputy Minister of Trade, in order to develop new partnerships. 16 of the companies, who will hold almost 400 business negotiations in Ankara, Istanbul and Izmir before the weekend, are companies who have not yet carried out business in Turkey.

Lally, the US Embassy Advisor to Trade, underlined the fact that companies from USA care about Turkish market and stated that 35 companies applied to visit, but they could accept only 17 of them.

A business volume of nearly 30 billion dollars is targeted between two countries with the new trading partnerships.

It is expected that the industry will reach a volume of 3 billion dollars by 2015.”
