The Annual Meeting of the New Champions, traditionally organized by the World Economic Forum every year and known to the public as the Davos Summit, took place in Tianjin, China, on the 27th to 29th of June. Cevdet Alemdar, President of Sabancı Holding Industry Group, made a call to business leaders to invest in Turkey at the summit with the theme of “Entrepreneurship: The Driving Force of the Global Economy”.

Nearly 1,500 participants from the public, private sector, civil society and academia were present at the summit, which was held for the 14th time this year. Sabancı Holding Industry Group President Cevdet Alemdar was among the names representing the Turkish business world at the meetings where the problems in the world economy, geopolitical developments and roadmaps for green transformation were discussed.

Speaking at the “Making the Middle Corridor Future-Proof” panel held as part of the event, Cevdet Alemdar Doğu underlined the importance of the supply chain between Western geographies in the global economy and drew attention to the critical role Turkey has assumed in this chain.


Cevdet Alemdar, who stated that Turkey has assumed a much more important role for the world economy, especially the European market, in the global supply chain, whose transformation has accelerated with the effect of the pandemic, said, “The world welfare and economy is transforming on a new level with sustainability and digitalization. During this transformation, the importance of agility and being close to the customer is increasing day by day. In such a conjuncture; With its strategic location between Asia and Europe, its entrepreneurial structure and strong industrial infrastructure, Turkey plays an important role in the world. Turkey’s recent climb to the top in global innovation indices and entrepreneurship indicators such as patent applications reveals that entrepreneurship is a business culture in our country. All these are also the key to a new success story that Turkey can write in the coming period.”
