‘’ In such a period, it is very valuable for both investors and countries for global investors to come together and address the investment environment of the future. With Covid-19, we are now talking about the concept of ‘the new normal’. Investing in sectors will be a priority, what should be the new support policies of the countries? We are in a period where every company, big and small, requires digital transformation, and the integration of big projects is increasingly important. ‘’
‘’ Turkey will continue to grow in the IT field.’’
SAP Turkey General Manager Ugur Candan noted that Turkey made many important step towards digitization in recent years, and continues to grow in the IT field.
Platforms where global investment trends will be discussed and all stakeholders of the subject will come together are of critical importance for our country to make greater strides. With this perspective, we are delighted to support the YASED International Investment Summit. Candan said:
‘’ We believe that Turkey’s geopolitical position offers a valuable investment environment in the medium and long term with its young population and growth potential. Since its foundation, SAP Turkey have continued increasing investments. Our Software Development Centre established in Teknopark Istanbul in 2013 is an important indicator of our trust towards Turkey’s economy. As Europe’s most valuable brand, we develop our high technologies, software, and applications to ‘make the world more liveable and improve human life’.’’
‘’ There are signs that the global investment environment will harden. ‘’
Cengiz Eroldu, Tofas Senior Manager (CEO) stated that Tofas has continued making investments in industrialization for more than 50 years and these investments are the proof of their beliefs towards Turkey’s future and great potential. Eroldu continued:
‘’ New versions of Egea, Turkey’s most favoured model, will meet with the consumers in the first months of 2021 and this is an up-to-date indicator of our determination and belief in the future. The increase in uncertainties, the sharpening of trade wars are among the changes created by new technologies, and the pandemic course indicates that the global investment environment will harden. Reshaping global supply chains under these pressures made Turkey’s rise to the top level of competitiveness critical. In such a period, we believe that the meeting of government representatives, investors and experts at this summit, which will create an environment of dialogue for the future, will be a good opportunity to demonstrate the determination to continue investments and to define what needs to be done to improve the investment environment. ‘’
‘’ It is an important step to encourage more investment in our country. ‘’

‘’ Global developments brought about by the epidemic period we are in, offer us a great opportunity as a country to start a real mobilization with a rational program. In such an environment, it is very precious that the world’s leading international investors will come together at the International Investment Summit organized for the first time by YASED. As a group that has devoted itself to the industry and strives to increase production and investment in our country for 63 years, we regard the summit, which YASED has realized at such a critical time, as an important step in order to improve the investment environment and encourage more investment to come to our country, and we are very pleased to contribute to this valuable meeting. ‘’
