Investment Office President Burak Dağlıoğlu briefed nearly 50 executives of US-based companies at the “US Chamber of Commerce Virtual Roundtable”.
Mr. Dağlıoğlu provided an overview of the Investment Office's general services, with a focus on measures and support for the business community during the COVID-19 pandemic. He mentioned that the Office created an e-mail hotline for investors during COVID-19, so that companies could easily reach for urgent matters.
The call also provided a platform for an open Q&A session. U.S.-Turkey Business Council members discussed Turkey's product-specific investment incentives for value-added exports, policy reforms for pricing and reimbursements for healthcare products, possibilities of government support on employment for multinationals during COVID-19, and agriculture manufacturing capacity.
The virtual roundtable was led by Mr. Khush Choksy, the Chamber's Senior Vice President for Middle East and Turkey Affairs; Cargill's Mr. Van Yeutter, Chair of US-Turkey Business Council (USTBC); and Sabanci Holding's Dr. Tamer Saka, Vice-Chair of USTBC.
