Turkish Economy Presentation to Spanish Investors

Burak Dağlıoğlu, President of the Investment Office of the Presidency of the Republic of Turkey, told Spanish business people about the Turkish economy and new opportunities to increase investment.

Delivering a presentation titled “Turkey, Your Resilient Investment Partner” at the headquarters of the Spanish Confederation of Employers’ Organizations (CEOE) in Madrid, Dağlıoğlu said that Turkey has achieved strong and stable growth with the reforms it has carried out in the last 20 years and has an economy with very high productivity.

Dağlıoğlu emphasized that Turkey has successfully overcome global economic crises and taken great steps in digitalization and sustainability, and stated that the Turkish market stands out both in its region and in the rest of the world with its market diversity, geostrategic location, strong infrastructure and skilled workforce.

“We have created a hub economy where different components come together for companies investing in Turkey,” Dağlıoğlu said, underlining that more than 600 international companies operate in Turkey.

Dağlıoğlu reminded that Turkey’s export target for 2028 is 400 billion dollars, with the goal of becoming one of the world’s top 10 largest economies.

Dağlıoğlu invited Spaniards to evaluate new investment opportunities in the environment, green energy, renewable energy, digitalization, high technology and service sectors.

Marta Blanco, Head of International Relations at CEOE, said, “For us, Turkey is definitely a strategic market. Turkey is very important for many different reasons such as its strategic location, close cooperation with Asian and Middle Eastern countries, investment opportunities, sustainable economic growth in the country.”

Noting that Spanish investors should find and focus on new opportunities in Turkey, Blanco said that more than 70 Spanish investment companies are actively and constructively working in Turkey.

“When we talk about investment opportunities in Turkey, we need to look at it from a general perspective and evaluate the surrounding developments and external factors,” said Onur Genç, BBVA Senior Manager.

Ambassador of Turkey to Madrid Nüket Küçükel Ezberci emphasized that Turkey and Spain have strong and multifaceted relations in every field.

Stating that Turkey and Spain have a common strategic perspective in many areas, Ezberci noted that Spain is one of the countries that best understands that Turkey’s accession to the EU is of great importance for both Europe and Turkey.
