Turkish State Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Nazim Ekren said on Thursday that the public and private sectors of Turkey and Croatia, which had an active and strong economic freedom in their region, would cooperate in an effort to bring to life the potential between the two countries.
Speaking at the joint meeting of the Turkish-Croatian Business Council in Istanbul, Ekren said that Turkey attached great importance to its relations with Croatia, which carried out a remarkable role for providing peace, confidence and stability in the Southeast Europe.
Noting that the improvement of economic relations between Turkey and Croatia would contribute to regional prosperity and stability, Ekren said the bilateral economic agreements signed between the countries on Wednesday would create new cooperation opportunities.
Ekren also said that Turkey offered attractive investment opportunities and it was ready to share its resources with countries in its near region.
"Within this context, I would like to express that Croatian investors can carry out joint activities with their Turkish counterparts in wide-scale energy and transportation projects in the region, taking into consideration the significant geo-economic location of Turkey," Ekren said.
Ekren said that the two countries could particularly cooperate in sectors such as tourism, ship building, banking, finance and leasing.
