Excited about business expansion

            I have noticed that the strong economic growth in India and Turkey has found reflection in bilateral trade and investments.  Trade is growing at 15-20% annually and more companies are interested in seeking long term investments. But the potential is much greater. The desire to deepen economic ties is strong. 

            Embassy of India in partnership with all Indian companies based in Turkey, launched India Business Forum (IBF) in Istanbul on 7 December 2018.  IBF seeks to promote Brand India, promote Indian presence, share best practices, strengthen CSR, host sessions with Turkish authorities, economic think tanks and industry associations and develop links with FICCI and CII. 

            IBF would be our platform for deeper economic engagement as we create a new partnership with Turkey, focused on trade, investment and technology.  Turkish officials support the new endeavour and feel IBF would open new gateways and business opportunities for both sides.  Indian companies are excited about the initiative and hope that IBF becomes the voice of Indian business in Turkey.
