Chinese companies in Turkey exceeds 1,000
The number of Chinese companies in Turkey has exceeded 1,000 with special industrial zones, Turkey’s ambassador to Beijing said on Aug. 15.
“We have taken action to create special zones in some Turkish provinces for investors coming from China. For example, we [put in place] organized industrial zones where only Chinese businesspeople make investments,” Önen told state-run Anadolu Agency.
China has been in a process of making important investments in a largescale area and Turkey had great opportunities to cooperate for a win-win situation, he added.
“I call on our Turkish businesspeople to go to China, to localize there, to be permanent. The coming period will be the era of prosperity for China,” Önen said.
Meanwhile, a record number of over 400,000 Chinese tourists will have visited Turkey in 2018.
The number of Chinese tourists who have visited Turkey in the first four months of 2018 is up by 97 percent from last year.
