Turkey's president invited Irish businessmen to make more investments in Turkey.

Abdullah Gul said at a joint news conference with President Mary McAleese of Ireland, "we want to further improve our bilateral relations with Ireland."

He thanked the Irish president for extending full support to Turkey's European Union membership process.

"Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu paid an official visit to Ireland a while ago. During the visit, the parties held detailed talks on several issues. We are determined to further develop our cooperation in the areas of tourism and education. Last year, some 120 thousand Irish tourist came to Turkey to spend their holiday. We welcomed recent increase in number of Irish tourists visiting our country this year," he said.

Highlighting importance of improving economic and commercial relations between the two countries, President Gul added, "I believe that President McAleese's visit will make a valuable contribution to efforts to boost our economic relations.
