FDI inflows from France have surpassed USD 8 billion since 2002, while around 1,700 French companies operate in Türkiye. Under the auspices of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, we will continue our efforts to invite international investors, particularly from France, to Türkiye as we step into our Republic's second century that is referred to as the Türkiye Century.​
