“Turkey is an important alternative supply source for global giants," said AmCham Chairman Tankut Turnaoğlu during an interview with a national newspaper based in Turkey.
Commenting on a number of key topics including global supply chains (GSC), global acquisitions, Turkey's position as a regional hub in a competitive environment and investments, Turnaoğlu pointed to the fact that the dynamics of GSCs were forced to change due to the outbreak of COVID-19. He further stated that Turkey offered a great alternative for companies, which have been looking for new supply channels. “Turkey's position as a regional hub has grown significantly stronger. In fact, some US-based companies moved their regional headquarters from Dubai to Istanbul," he added.
Turnaoğlu also unveiled that AmCham partnered up with the Investment Office to hold a meeting with the chief procurement managers in top US companies.
