A senior official from the leading U.S. energy company GE Energy said on Thursday that his firm considered Turkey a "key country" for its operations.
Ricardo Cordoba, GE Energy's Director for Western Europe & North Africa, told AA that Turkey grew so fast and it would need safer and more productive energy in near future.
Describing Turkey as an important market for GE Energy, Cordoba said his company planned to make more investments and localize more in Turkey.
Noting that GE Energy was always interested in meaningful purchasing opportunities offered by Turkey, Cordoba said the company did not plan any nuclear energy investments in the country at the moment.
GE Energy, headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, United States, is one of the world's leading suppliers of power generation and energy delivery technologies.
Comprised of GE Oil & Gas, GE Power & Water, and GE Energy Services, GE Energy's business units work together to provide integrated products, services, and solutions in all areas of the energy industry, including coal, oil, natural gas, and nuclear energy; renewable resources such as wind, solar, and biogas; and other alternative fuels.
