Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that the increasing interest of foreign investors in Turkey, including the capital markets, is a manifestation of confidence in the Turkish economy and diplomacy.
This came in a message he sent to the “Sixth Turkish Capital Markets Conference” held in a hybrid form (virtual and in attendance) in Istanbul and organized by the “Turkish Capital Markets Federation” on Thursday during its opening under the slogan “Beyond Finance: Investing in the Future of the World.”
Erdogan affirmed his country’s strong will to make Istanbul a center of global finance, adding, “We are making steady progress towards our goal through the steps we have taken in the economy, diplomacy, trade, tourism, transportation, and others in many fields.”
Erdogan pointed out that the Corona pandemic and the ensuing heated conflicts in the neighboring regions of his country moved Turkey to a different position.
He continued, “Our country has become one of the rising stars in recent years, thanks to its strong health infrastructure, productive strength, ability to recover quickly, and many other advantages.”
He explained that the balanced and consensual policies that his government had successfully pursued since the early days of the Ukrainian-Russian crisis had strengthened Turkey’s role as a “playmaker.”
He stated that the increasing interest of foreign investors in Turkey, including the capital markets, is a manifestation of confidence in the Turkish economy and diplomacy, noting that the malicious statements of some parties targeting the Turkish capital markets will never change this fact.
The Turkish President expressed his belief that the Turkish capital markets will continue to grow, stressing that the doors of his country are open to all investors who are confident in the bright future of the Turkish economy.
