Invest_in_agriculture_turkey.jpgAgriculture is one of the main economic sectors in Turkey which is important for foreign investors, interested in doing business in this country, due to the solid economic growth in the recent years. Nearly 10% of the Turkish GDP comes from agriculture which is also an important source for employment. Turkey is well-known as a major producer of fruits and vegetables and a part of them is exported mainly to the EU countries.

Almost half of the lands in Turkey – 39 million hectares - are for agriculture and nearly a quarter of the active population is involved in agricultural activities. In Turkey, there are nearly three million agricultural holdings and most of them are small and owned by families. Agriculture had remained one of the most important economic activities in Turkey due to the favorable climate.

There is an increasing demand for agricultural products both inside and outside Turkey due to the young Turkish population, who needs a wide diversity of food, and the global demand in countries all over Europe.

Turkey has become the leader in the top of the world growers of figs, raisins and hazelnuts and is among the biggest suppliers of milk in the region. This country has become one of the top exporters of agricultural products in Europe (especially the eastern part), Middle East and Africa (the north part).

Advantages for foreign investors

Low costs for workforce in agriculture, advantageous regulations and taxes and incentives offered by the Turkish authorities are a few important aspects for a foreign investor who thinks of opening a business or a company in the agriculture.

Important opportunities for foreign entrepreneurs are in the following fields of agriculture:

-    fruit and vegetables to be processed;
-    milk and diary sector
-    livestock.

The authorities in Turkey intend to expand the production of fruits and vegetables and they expect foreign entrepreneurs to invest in this sector which has an important potential for the next years. The government supported the investments in irrigation and infrastructure and the foreign direct investments in agriculture increased to over $ 2 bn in 2012.

The foreign entrepreneurs who have already invested in Turkish agriculture are satisfied with the well trained workforce and the low costs for salaries.
