Italians to look into lands in Turkey’s GAP

Zaman – The Southeastern Anatolia Project (GAP), one of Turkey’s largest investments, has become foreign investors’ center of attention. Leading Italian companies show great interest in the project, in which a total of more than TRY 27 million has been invested so far. Officials from the GAP Administration, the State Planning Organization (DPT) and the Ministry of Agriculture went to Milan last month and convinced a number of companies during face-to-face meetings. Around ten companies in the renewable energy, engineering, cultivation, industry, construction and tourism sectors will visit the GAP region in order to carry out research and analysis studies. In addition, the Italian Ministry of Economic Development will carry out research studies in the region along with Italian investors in 2010.
