On May 21, the Investment Office, the Chinese Embassy in Turkey and the China Export & Credit Insurance Corporation (Sinosure) jointly organized a webinar on Turkey's investment climate.
Among the attendees of the webinar were Turkey's Ambassador to China A.Emin Önen, China's Ambassador to Turkey Liu Shaobin and Investment Office President Burak Dağlıoğlu.
Speaking about the investment climate in Turkey following the Covid-19 pandemic, Investment Office President Burak Dağlıoğlu said, “Pandemic-related supply and demand shocks and the recent logistic crisis in the Suez Canal revealed the necessity for a change in global supply chains and proved that Turkey offers unique opportunities for investors to access lucrative markets in its region and to diversify their supply chains."
“Comparative advantages of Turkey lie in its manufacturing power, tech-savvy young talents, geostrategic location, free trade agreements, logistics infrastructure, resilient economy, and its liberal and business-friendly investment environment," Dağlıoğlu added.
“Chinese companies can use Turkey as a springboard to access the European Union and the Middle East and North Africa. Turkey has a Custom Union with the European and free trade agreements with 28 countries. Companies in Turkey may access almost a billion potential customers. Turkey is an ideal location for Chinese companies for manufacturing and export," Dağlıoğlu concluded.
