Turkey is the largest and most important market for EDC in the Eastern Mediterranean region, evidenced by the opening of our Istanbul representation in 2011. The country’s economy is increasingly driven by its industry and service sectors, although its traditional agriculture and textile sectors remain important employment drivers. Privatization of national assets is a growing trend creating investment opportunities for companies. Canada has a well-established trade relationship with Turkey and the country has a relatively strong dependence on trade, also positioning itself as a regional hub. The country’s economic liberalization program has led to an increase in trade opportunities. Further economic reforms are expected to boost Turkey’s attractiveness to foreign investors. Overall, there is great potential for trade and investment for Canadian companies across a wide range of sectors. In view of the recent military coup attempt in Turkey, please consult our Country Risk Quarterly report for additional information.
