Turkey has potential to become an important center in the world with its strategic location and young and dynamic population. As a country, Turkey's biggest advantage and asset is its vantage point as a geographical location, serving as a transit and transfer hub between the Middle East, Asia, and Europe, functioning as a physical bridge. This expedient natural setting, facilitating an easy access for Turkey to reach out to Eastern Europe, Central Asia, the Middle East, and Northern Africa, enables the country to benefit from an alluring opportunity of operating as a base in an expanding region.
We certainly believe that Turkey offers very good opportunities for long-term growth. Today, Turkey is one of our important markets in Europe, and we are happy to invest in Turkey.
