Investment Office Concludes Asian Round of “Türkiye Century Investment Receptions” with Malaysia

​​The Investment Office successfully concluded the second round of its “Türkiye Century Investment Receptions" series in Asia with Malaysia following the likes of China and Singapore, as part of its commemorative roadshow to honor the 100th anniversary of the Republic of Türkiye. The reception, hosted in the Turkish Embassy in Kuala Lumpur, provided the Malaysian business community with an up-to-date overview of Türkiye's growing investment environment and lucrative opportunities, with opening remarks delivered by Ambassador of the Republic of Türkiye in Kuala Lumpur Emir Salim Yüksel and Investment Office President A. Burak Dağlıoğlu. Among the reception guests were Malaysia's Deputy Minister of Investment, Trade and Industry Chin Tong Liew and UEM Group Executive Director Dato Mohd Izani Gani.

Touching on the bilateral ties between Malaysia and Türkiye in his speech, Ambassador Yüksel said, “The most recent expansion amendments to the first Free Trade Agreement we signed in 2015 include provisions for services, e-commerce, and investments. The everimproving economic relations between the two countries have significant potential ranging from aviation to raw material trade, particularly in the halal industry."

For his part, Investment Office President A. Burak Dağlıoğlu stated the “Türkiye Century Investment Receptions" continued with Malaysia, with which Türkiye holds a comprehensive strategic partner-level relationship, adding, “In addition to the recent defense industry collaborations, Malaysia-based companies invest in Türkiye in the energy, finance, transportation, retail, healthcare and startup industries. We believe that President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's recent inauguration of the Istanbul Finance Center will spark new prospects, including participation finance, where Malaysia is a key player."

During his keynote remarks at the reception, Malaysia's Deputy Minister of Investment, Trade and Industry Chin Tong Liew said, “I am honored to be invited to this event commemorating Türkiye's 100th anniversary. Türkiye aims to rank among the world's top 10 economies, while Malaysia aims to be among the top 30 global economies. I believe that developing bilateral economic relations will considerably contribute to the fulfillment of these goals. I am closely following Türkiye's rising success story in the defense industry and believe there is still much to be achieved in this area."

UEM Group Executive Director Dato Mohd Izani Gani said, “Khazanah collaborated closely with the Investment Office and received significant support. As a result, a regional office was successfully established in 2013. I personally witnessed Investment Office's exclusive relationship with Khazanah when I served as the Regional Director of Türkiye between 2017 and 2018."
