‘It’s time to invest in Turkey,’ Turkish minister tells US businesspeople
NEW YORK - Anadolu Agency
Turkey’s trade minister has invited businesspeople from the United States to invest in his country.
“Our trade volume with the U.S. has doubled in the last 10 years to reach over $20 billion, but there are still plenty of opportunities to move that figure up,” Ruhsar Pekcan said at the Ninth Turkey Investment Conference held by the Turkey-U.S. Business Council (TAİK) in New York.
“I want to see more U.S. companies and [their] investments in Turkey. Now is the time to come and invest in Turkey,” she added.
Speaking at the same event earlier, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said Turkey and the U.S. would overcome the current “turbulent period” in their relations through their strategic partnership.
“Our strategic partnership, which has gone through difficulties so many times, will overcome this turbulent period,” he said.
