6 November 2006 (morning only), Istanbul, Turkey
Immediately preceding the OECD Global Forum on International Investment, on the morning of 6 November 2006, a Roundtable was organised around the host country Turkey. During this session, Turkey’s recent experience with strategies for enhancing the enabling environment for investment was discussed in the context of the Policy Framework for Investment. The main focus will be on the relevant aspects of regulatory reform and their impact on the investment climate.
The Turkey Country Roundtable will focus on macro and micro economic policies and investment strategies that Turkey should pursue in order to attract new investments. In this context the following questions will be answered during this roundtable:
Given the fact that there are many other nations around Turkey racing to attract potential investors to their respective countries, what are the competitive advantages (and disadvantages) of Turkey compared to other nations and what should be done to increase these advantages (and eliminate disadvantages)?
What are the positive effects of Turkey’s Regulatory Reform Program on the investment climate?
What are the shortcomings of Turkey’s current investment climate?
What type of macro and micro strategies should be pursued to attract greenfield investments?
