ESKİŞEHİR/ANKARA - Anadolu Agency
Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım said on Sept. 10 that $300 billion worth of investments will be made in the country in the next 10 years.
Yıldırım said $100 billion of investment will be made in the transport sector in the next decade in Turkey, as he addressed a meeting of businessmen and representatives of non-governmental organizations in the northwestern province of Eskişehir.
He said $100 billion each will be invested in health technology, information, communication and virtual reality sectors.
“I am talking about $300 billion of investment. And I am not talking about the distant future, I am talking about the next 10 years,” he said.
“We are working to make our country a center for global investors,” he added.
He noted that the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) had identified all the hurdles foreign investors faced in Turkey, and had removed them one-by-one.
He said that in the last 15 years, $186 billion of global direct investment was made in Turkey.
