“Hot” industrial areas in Turkey: Bursa has come into the cross-hairs of Italian companies

The consultation study on the “Industrial Zones in Turkey: incentives and market opportunities for Italian companies” conducted by the ICE Office of Istanbul on last February 13, indicates that the province of Bursa, in the northwest of Turkey, is the best area for the Italian companies growth, in particular for those active in the field of automotive.
In fact, half of the plants of the 16 Italian car manufacturers operating in Turkey, such as Tofaş Fiat, Tiberina and Sirena, operate in Bursa. Among the 18 industrial complexes in Bursa, the Hasanağa area has been highlighted. And, also in this district, there are 47 of the 135 foreign companies that invest in Turkey.

The Italian chemical grows with exports in Turkey

With reference to the production sectors analyzed in the report (energy, chemical, pharmaceutical, instrumental mechanics, automotive and components) a great boost in exports was found in the chemical sector for Italian companies, especially in the selected industrial area of Gebkim in the district Gebze, in the northwestern province of Kocaeli.

The moment is worthy for the chemical industry in Turkey. Our companies export capacity depends on global demand, which, beyond the brake caused by the pandemic emergency, does not stop. It is no accident that chemical companies which made significant investments in research and innovation, in production and commercial structures are now reaping the fruits of their efforts in a lively and highly dynamic foreign market such as the Turkish one.
