Drawing attention to the importance of Turkiye for investors, Ertas said, “Turkiye has many strong aspects. Turkiye is an important bridge, a gateway between the east and the west, with connections to many regions.”
Ertas pointed out that there is a market where approximately 1.5 billion people live within a 4-hour flight distance from Turkiye, and reminded that it is possible for potential investors to access the European market through the Customs Union Agreement.
