The Turkish state minister for foreign trade said on Friday that political & economic stability and the free market policy had brought Turkey a 85 billion USD capital.
Speaking to reporters during his visit to Devrek Chamber of Commerce & Industry in the northwestern Zonguldak province, Turkish State Minister Zafer Caglayan said Turkey was located in a very important region.
"We are the closest center to Africa, Middle East, Asia, Caucasus and Europe. Turkey has received a 85 billion USD capital thanks to its political and economic stability as well as free market policy," he said.
Expressing government's support to NGOs and private sector, Caglayan said Turkey had turned into a significant attraction sector with all its towns, provinces and regions.
"30 million tourists visit our country. 12 million of them come to the Mediterranean province of Antalya. This figure is equal to the population of Ghana," he said.
The minister noted that Turks did business in every part of the world, adding Turkish contractors had earned 135 billion USD in the last 8 years.
"As the government, we are displaying all the efforts for the benefits of our country," Caglayan said.
