The volume of foreign direct investments in Turkey increased by 81% in 2021, which is a record number in the Turkish market, as it reached 14.2 billion dollars, and is considered the highest foreign direct investment flow since 2016.

This came in a statement by the President of the Investment Office of the Presidency of the Republic, Burak Daglioğlu, to Anadolu Agency, in which he spoke about foreign direct investments in Turkey, the expectations for the current year 2022, and Turkish promises to foreign investors for the upcoming year 2023.

Daglioğlu explained that foreign direct investment in the world witnessed a 35% decline in 2020, affected by the Corona pandemic, while Turkey recorded the most moderate decline in the world by 18%.

He explained that the geographical distribution of incoming foreign direct investment was 60% from Europe, 24% from Asia, and 16% from America.

He pointed out that the countries that occupied the top ten positions in foreign direct investment in Turkey are: the United Kingdom, the United States, the Netherlands, Switzerland, the United Arab Emirates, Germany, Luxembourg, South Korea, Japan, and Ireland.

He also mentioned that 309 merger and acquisition deals took place in Turkey during 2021, and that 50 of these transactions included the purchase of local shares by international companies, with a value of 22 billion liras (about 1.6 billion dollars).

Daglioğlu explained that Turkey, with its strong, resilient, and fast-growing economy, provides access to global markets with its cross-site with Europe, Asia, and Africa, as well as investor-friendly policies through which it attracts sustainable international direct investment.

He added that Turkey always keeps its doors open to all investors who want to invest with the motto of "Profit together".

"Turkey promises investors a friendly business environment, supports this promise with the successful reforms it has implemented with its strong political leadership since 2003, and continues its reforms rapidly," he added.

 Real estate investment in Turkey 

The city of Istanbul is in a constant state of urban development and growth, where real estate projects, infrastructure projects and mega projects worldwide are increasing day by day.

This growth is considered an attractive factor for many who are looking for a solid land in which to build their investments and guarantee their profits in the long run. The longer you keep the properties, the more their value will increase, and your profit will increase when appraising and evaluating the property, and one of the biggest advantages of owning investment properties is the fixed and regular rental return.

Asian side of Istanbul

  1. Umraniye area

Umraniye is considered the center of Asian Istanbul, and it is an investment and residential area par excellence, its real estate projects are growing day by day, and it has gained a reputation and fame among foreign investors because of its investment importance and increasing value.

Umraniye area is characterized by the presence of the Istanbul International Financial Center, which added a great impact and contributed to transforming Umraniye area into a center of attraction for promising investments in Istanbul, making it at the forefront of the leading investment areas on the Asian side in particular and in the whole of Istanbul in general.

One of the reasons that makes Umraniye area suitable for investment as well, is the rapid increase in the population of the area, and this has caught the attention of those who invest in real estate in recent years.

Besides, the presence of Uskudar Metro and easy access to and from the area made it Istanbul's Asian center and led to the rapid rise in real estate prices and investment rates.

As for transportation, the opening of the Uskudar - Umraniye - Çekmekoy - Sancaktepe metro lines was a qualitative leap for the residents of the area and for those wishing to move and live in Umraniye neighborhoods. The transition from Umraniye to the Uskudar area takes only 12 minutes, and the access from Umraniye to the European side of Istanbul takes no more than 20 minutes, and since the start of the new metro line, the area has witnessed a great demand that was reflected in the rise in real estate prices and the increase in the investment budget significantly.

The special thing about Umraniye is the Istanbul International Financial Center project, which is set to be an international financial center with first-class commercial and office districts and aims to be the international pioneer of innovative and sustainable development. As soon as the construction work of the Istanbul International Financial Center project began, there was a significant increase in real estate investment rates in this area.
