Dei – Turkey: second among emerging countries for infrastructure investments

With 17 new projects, Turkey ranks second among 139 emerging countries for investments in infrastructure. This according to a World Bank report that underscored how Turkey was behind Brazil but ahead of Peru, Columbia and India. These five countries attracted an overall 78 billion USD in investments in 2014, amounting to 73% of the total invested in all emerging countries. The reforms of 2008 had a positive impact on energy investments in Turkey. A full 4.3 billion USD was invested in the thermoelectric plants of Kemerköy and Yeniköy, 1.1 billion for Yatağan thermal power station and 350 million for the Çatalağzı power plant. Transport system infrastructure investments in Turkey also played a leading role, with 1.1 billion USD for the port of Salipazari and 2.9 billion for the third bridge over the Bosphorus and the Northern Marmara motorway project.
