Turkish Legal Environment

As the 16th largest economy in the world and 6th in Europe, and with a growth average rate of 4.8% per year for the last 8 years, Turkey has attracted an approximate of 100 billion dollars of foreign direct investment over the last ten years.

Turkey has a welcoming approach to foreign investments. The legislation is being liberalized since early 1990's, and after 2001 most of the remaining barriers against access by foreign investors have been removed.

Although Turkey is shown only as the 65th country by IFC in overall assessment for ease of doing business, as for value of opportunities, consumption demand, access to regional countries, young and qualified human resource, and availability of practical measures to tackle issues, we believe that Turkey is unmatched and is among the best venues for investors.
