On the occasion of July 15th Democracy and National Unity Day, the Turkish nation rallied in Ankara and İstanbul to commemorate the 3rd anniversary of the failed coup attempt that had taken place on July 15, 2016, and that had cost the lives of more than 250 people.
President Erdoğan attended some events in Ankara and İstanbul. Erdoğan first laid flowers at the July 15 Martyrs' Monument in Ankara and attended a special session at the Grand National Assembly of Turkey. He then made a speech at the opening ceremony of the police headquarters building in the capital city. Arriving in İstanbul, President Erdoğan addressed attendees gathered at Atatürk Airport and inaugurated the July 15 Memorial Museum, built at the Anatolian end of the July 15 Martyrs’ Bridge.
As a reminder, Turkey experienced a considerable amount of recovery in total FDI in the wake of July 2016. Thanks to the measures taken and confidence provided, foreign direct investments gained momentum and have totaled USD 42.4 billion since 2016. The Investment Office works hard to attract more and qualified FDI to the country.
