Investment Office President Arda Ermut attended a business meeting in Italy on January 20, organized by Italian law firm Grimaldi Studio Legale and independent and non-profit think tank CeSPI. The meeting showcased the survey results compiled from the 78 Italian companies operating in Turkey in the November-December 2019 period.
Commenting on the survey results, Ermut said that 9 out of 10 Italian companies are pleased to invest in Turkey. “It is encouraging to get such positive feedback. We hope that this trend will continue to improve moving forward,” said Ermut.
Ermut also spoke to participants about Turkey’s strategic location, fiscal system, legal system, macroeconomic policies, geostrategic risks, and relations with the US and EU. Turkish Ambassadors to Rome and Vatican Murat Salim Esenli and Lütfullah Göktaş also attended the meeting.
