Positive Regulations Regarding Data Protection Encourage Potential Investors

Investment Office President Burak Dağlıoğlu spoke on March 5 at the Turkish Personal Data Protection Law & EU General Data Protection Regulation Conference organized by YASED International Investors Association in İstanbul.

Stating that YASED has made great contributions to increasing Turkey's global competitiveness, Dağlıoğlu talked about what the Investment Office is doing for the promotion of Turkey abroad.

Dağlıoğlu stated that as a result of YOIKK (Coordination Board for the Improvement of the Investment Environment) studies, which YASED also participated in, Turkey rose to 33rd among 190 countries in the World Bank’s 2020 Ease of Doing Business Index. “The correct use of personal data is one of the most important issues. We will follow this fruitful conference and entire meetings. During our efforts to attract new investments to Turkey, we see that the subject of data is very noticeable and we predict that investments in companies related to data [handling and protection] will increase in the future.”

Among the attendees of the conference were YASED Chairperson and BOEING Turkey Managing Director and Country Executive Ayşem Sargın, Chairman of the Turkish Data Protection Authority Faruk Bilir, and Digital Transformation Office President Ali Taha Koç.
