(ECO) TURKEY ATTRACTS 6 BLN USD INVESTMENTS IN EIGHT MONTHS.

ANKARA, Oct 31, 2009 (TUR) -- The Turkish premier announced on Friday that Turkey attracted investments around 6 billion USD in the first eight months of 2009.

Turkey's Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that Turkey drew that much investment in the first eight months of 2009 as global crisis had affected direct international investments.

"Turkey will continue to attract more direct investments as global crisis is overcome," Erdogan said during a meeting at the Investment Support and Promotion Agency of Turkey.

The amount of investments Turkey drew was 2.5 billion USD in 2004, 10 billion USD in 2005, 20 billion USD in 2006, 22 billion USD in 2007, and 18.3 billion USD in 2008.

Erdogan said Turkey had become a center of attraction for investments, thanks to its radical reforms, stability and strong economy.

There were 22,821 international companies in Turkey, including 12,463 from European countries and 3,888 from Near and Middle Eastern countries, Erdogan also said.

Prime Ministry Investment Support and Promotion Agency is the official organization for encouraging and promoting investment in Turkey. The agency's mandate is to present investment opportunities to members of the global business community and to assist them before, during, and after their entry into Turkey. It serves as a reference point for international investors and as a point of contact for all institutions engaged in promoting and attracting investments at national, regional and local levels.
