Turkey is a favorite of investors.
Turkey, with its rapid economic growth has attracted investors from the Middle East, especially in the real estate sector. Dr. Rıza Kadılar, discussing the theme "Turkey is becoming a new center of attraction for investors from the Middle East?", said that major investors from Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Qatar and Saudi Arabia came together, and that Turkey is very attractive to investors coming from the region Middle East and Persian Gulf.

Kadılar summed up: "Factors such as light availability, climate, infrastructure and development opportunities provided by our economy, bring our country onto the front plan. However, project profits are lower than that of the leading countries such as England, Spain and Germany. In particular, it prevents the entrance in the market investors who seek profits. With the adoption of law on the abolition of the principle of reciprocity, this problem will disappear. Foreigners are eagerly waiting for a new legal settlement, which will overcome such obstacle as a principle of reciprocity."
