Türkiye continues to be a safe haven for investors. The recent steps taken by the economic management have also found response in the United States.
Critical meetings were held at Goldman Sachs, one of the world’s most important investment banks. Türkiye became the center of attention of investors here.
200 senior officials from American companies attended the meetings. The environment of trust in Turkey was explained. Details regarding the Medium Term Program were shared.
Turkey-US Business Council President Mehmet Ali Yalçındağ stated that it was a very successful meeting and said, “First, our minister of commerce made a presentation. He explained what the medium-term program means and it was very important. “Then our esteemed minister Mehmet Şimşek made a very nice presentation,” he said.
Managers of Turkey’s most important companies were also present at the meetings.
“The most important issue was whether Mr. President supported this program or not. There, investors saw that the economic management, especially Mr. President, believes in this. The cabinet believes in this. This was important. For the first time in a long time, there was participation by a Turk at such a high level. Fund managers showed great interest, as did private sector representatives. “They, as the private sector, saw firsthand what their view of the medium-term program was and how they planned their investments for the next 5 years.”
Turkey’s bilateral trade with the United States exceeded 32 billion dollars last year. The target is to reach 100 billion dollars.
