Turkey invites foreign investors to Turkey
“As we continue to fight terror and eliminate terrorism from these provinces, I believe we will attract more investors and entrepreneurs because of the fact that we provide very advantageous incentives for the investors,” Erdoğan said at a meeting with Turkey’s trade counselors on April 30.

“I am of the belief that we will host 50 million tourists in 2019. With the rise in the number of tourists, we will also increase our income by diversifying of tourism,” he said.
In his address to the counselors, Erdoğan recalled that reaching the $500 billion export figure was among Turkey’s centennial objectives by 2023.
“We now have a four-year period without elections. We should be able to use this period in the best way to fulfill our objectives. I believe we will be one of the countries with current account surplus,” he stressed.
