Turkish State Minister Kursad Tuzmen said on Thursday that the total value of projects carried out by Turkish contractors in foreign countries exceeded 130 billion USD.

A ceremony was held at Ankara's Sheraton Hotel to award the 23 Turkish contractors that were listed among the "Top 225 International Contractors" in an annual report prepared by "Engineering News Record" magazine.

Delivering a speech at the ceremony, Tuzmen said the success of the Turkish contractors showed that Turkey was currently one of the top three countries in the construction sector at international level.

"This situation puts Turkey in the third place behind China and USA," Tuzmen said.

Speaking at the ceremony, chairperson of Turkish Contractors' Association, Erdal Eren, said that the annual value of projects undertaken by Turkish contractors abroad reached 23.6 billion USD in 2008.

Eren also said that Turkish contractors' annual business volume in foreign countries increased nearly 15 times during the last 6 years.

During the ceremony, Premier Recep Tayyip Erdogan presented awards to Turkish companies ENKA, GAMA, RENAISSANCE, TEKZEN, YUKSEL, KAYI, BAYTUR, TAV, NUROL, MAK-YOL, STFA, HAZINEDAROGLU, SUMMA, GAP, YENIGUN, CENGIZ, RASEN, DOGUS, ALARKO, MESA, YASAR OZKAN, TML and USTAY.
