Turkey attracted nearly $7 billion direct investment in the first 8 months of 2018, said the head of the country’s presidential investment office.
This figure was almost the same with the January-August period in 2017, Arda Ermut told Anadolu Agency.
He noted that Turkey is expected to attract over $11 billion direct investment by the end of the current year, which is more than the figures registered in 2017.
When looking at economic issues  it is important that figures did not drop compared to last year, he said, adding: But we think that Turkey’s investment potential was much higher.”
The year 2019 will be a positive one with regard to investments due to structural measures, Ermut said.
“Turkey will continue to attract the attention of international investors,” he said.
