Investment Office President A. Burak Dağlıoğlu gave a keynote speech on recent developments and opportunities in Turkey's economy and investment environment at an online roundtable meeting held with the German Near and Middle East Business Association (NUMOV) on May 31. Among the attendees of the meeting were Germany's Minister of Economic Affairs and Energy Helge Tolksdorf, WILO Turkey's CEO Mehmet Ürek and Bosch Turkey CEO Steven Young.
“According to the IMF, in 2020, Turkey recorded the second highest growth among the G-20 economies. The sustained economic growth despite unforeseen conditions and crises has proven the resilience of the Turkish economy. Being one of the fastest growing economies, Turkey ranked 11th largest economy in the world in terms of purchasing power parity as of 2020," said Dağlıoğlu. “Despite the pandemic, the number of merger and acquisition deals has increased, while posting a significant diversification in their nature. Last year, Turkish startups raised 3 unicorns operating in online gaming, delivery services and online shopping," he added.
Investment Office Project Directors Zeki Emre Tekin and Görkem Yusuf Topçu also gave presentations on opportunities in Turkey's infrastructure and energy sectors during the event.
