Investment Office President A. Burak Dağlıoğlu was a keynote speaker together with US Ambassador in Türkiye Jeff Flake at AmCham Türkiye's 18th Ordinary General Assembly, which was attended by over 110 executives of US companies that contribute more than USD 50 billion annually to the Turkish economy.
During his address, Dağlıoğlu said, “Türkiye's relations with the US continue to excel in terms of investments and trade. In 2021, the US became Türkiye's second largest export destination, with bilateral trade volume soaring 28 percent to hit around USD 28 billion. In the same year, FDI inflows from the US to Türkiye reached USD 1.2 billion, with total FDI inflows since 2003 reaching USD 14.1 billion. The role and contributions of AmCham Türkiye, which has long operated in our country and has been a valuable stakeholder for us, are significant in this broad picture of successful investments. The investment, production, employment, and export oriented new Türkiye Economy Model unveiled by President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan also attaches utmost importance to FDI. We will continue to raise our country's FDI performance in cooperation with our key stakeholders, such as AmCham. I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate AmCham Türkiye's 18th General Assembly Meeting."
Founded in 2004, AmCham is a business association and NGO having created around 100,000 jobs in Türkiye.
