The Presidency of the Republic of Turkey Investment Office along with Ernst & Young Turkey organized a webinar entitled "FDI 2.0: Now, Next, and Beyond with COVID-19" on June 3rd.
Investment Office President Burak Dağlıoğlu made the opening speech and welcomed the audience. Dağlıoğlu provided an overview of the measures being taken by the Turkish government in response to the COVID-19 pandemic that has affected over 6 million people globally.
“Turkey was not caught unprepared… Turkey has been investing in its healthcare infrastructure by building—through public private partnerships—integrated healthcare campuses and city hospitals equipped with advanced technologies. It is worth mentioning that foreign investors have played an important role in Turkey's healthcare PPP projects," he said.
Dağlıoğlu also talked about the impact of the pandemic on FDI. “While the recent developments are certainly creating challenges for global FDI, on the other hand, they are also going to create new opportunities for companies and investment promotion agencies," he emphasized.
Head of the Strategy Department of the Investment Office, Muhiddin Keskin; EY Country Managing Partner of Turkey, Metin Canoğulları; and EY Associate Partner of Turkey, Serhat Akmeşe, also participated in the webinar.
