London hosts "Turkish Investment Summit"

Haber Turk - Yeni Safak - Taraf - The Turkish Embassy in London and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) are jointly organizing the "Turkish Investment Summit” this week. Speaking at the event, Alpaslan Korkmaz, President of the Investment Support and Promotion Agency of Turkey (ISPAT), said, “Turkey is the country of the future and we are here to make investors see this”, adding that Turkey is attracting investments in sectors such as renewable energy, food, hi-tech, manufacturing and shipbuilding. Korkmaz pointed out that many investors in Europe will be feeling uneasy about investing for the coming decade and it will take at least 4-5 years for the US economy to rebound. “Turkey is emerging as a new destination for investments and we will see investor interest surge by the next year”, Korkmaz noted.
