Erdogan to meet German CEOs in Berlin

A senior Turkish lawmaker said that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan would meet the CEOs of several major German companies during his visit to Berlin on Sept. 28.

"The main objective of our president's Germany visit is to give a boost to Turkey-Germany relations," Mustafa Yeneroglu, who holds a dual Turkish-German citizenship, told Anadolu Agency on Sunday.

"Our president will separately receive the CEOs of some big German companies and the representatives of NGOs," said Yeneroglu, who is a ruling Justice and Development (AK) Party member of the Central Decision and Executive Board (MKYK). 

Germany is Turkey’s main economic and trade partner and more than 7,500 German companies are active in Turkey. In 2017, the bilateral trade volume reached €37.6 billion ($43.6 billion).

Yeneroglu said that a huge delegation of German businesspeople would visit Turkey in September.

"A huge economic delegation with German businessmen will visit Turkey in September under the chairmanship of German Economy and Energy Minister Peter Altmaier," he said.

Yeneroglu stressed that Erdogan's visit was of vital significance considering the importance of German investments in Turkey.
