Turkish State Minister Zafer Caglayan said Tuesday that the factories of Turkish investors in Egypt and Tunisia were not damaged during the recent public unrest taking place in those two north African countries.
Minister Caglayan came together with Turkish investors who have invested in Egypt and Tunisia and Turkish businesspeople who have assumed construction projects in the two countries in a meeting held in Ankara on Tuesday.
Speaking at the meeting, Caglayan said that, in case Turkish businesses made a request regarding the Eximbank, the bank will assist Turkish businesspeople.
Caglayan's comments came after he was asked if the Turkish government would provide financial assistance to Turkish businesses hurt during the ongoing unrest in Egypt and Tunisia or not.
If a need for the Eximbank arises, we will evaluate the situation and determine how the bank can help, Caglayan said.
At this time, there is evidently no need to seek assistance from the Eximbank, Caglayan said.
