The Investment Support and Promotion Agency of Turkey (ISPAT) President's Welcome Message



Dear Investors;

IT President
İlker AYCI
President of ISPAT

It is a distinct pleasure for me to present "Doing Business in Turkey", which will introduce Turkey to the global business community. This publication will help you explore lucrative investment opportunities in Turkey and provide you with necessary information about how to do business in Turkey.

As the 17th largest economy in the world, Turkey offers ample opportunity for global investors. Our economy has sustained remarkable economic performance over the past eight years, growing by an average annual rate of approximately 5%, thus becoming one of the fastest growing economies in the world. A strong economic performance, growing domestic market, young population, skilled labour force, and strategic location have made Turkey one of the most attractive investment destinations in the world. Turkey has attracted more than 100 billion dollars in Foreign Direct Investment over the past eight and a half years since 2003, as compared to only 15 billion dollars FDI in the preceding three decades before 2003.

Turkey is increasingly attractive for investment as the global economy is undergoing fundamental changes, shifting the world's economic centre of gravity toward emerging economies, like Turkey. In this picture, proximity to the zones of opportunity is more crucial than ever. Such a vibrant country, with its strategic location, robust economy, political stability, skilled labour force, and young population, is certainly promising more growth for investors. As the Investment Support and Promotion Agency of Turkey, we invite global investors to join a rapidly growing Turkey.
