The US Atlantic Council in Turkey, in cooperation with the Atlantic Council’s Africa Center and the Foreign Economic Relations Board of Turkey (DEIK), is hosting a half-day conference in Istanbul titled “Turkey’s investment Opportunities in Africa, to explore business opportunities on the African continent”.

Turkey’s interest and engagement in Africa has grown significantly in recent years. Since 2013, bilateral trade volume between Turkey and Africa has grown to $17.5 billion and total Turkish investment in Africa is estimated at around $7 billion.

In this context, the conference was the second event this year organized by the Atlantic Council in Turkey in partnership with the Africa Center, following a round-table on March 19 titled “Africa in 2018 and Beyond: Challenges and Opportunities”.
