Shri Kamal Nath, Union Minister of Commerce and Industry, has invited the Turkish Companies to explore the Indian markets and make investments, especially in the infrastructure sector as it has the promise of sustained high levels of returns, and added that Indian companies are also committed to make investments in Turkey.

Indian investments in Turkey are in diverse sectors viz., railway construction, electricity transmission, pipelines, consultancy services for earthquake emergency, hydro-carbon, CNG conversion and IT services.

Turkish investments in India are in sectors of tourism & travel, home textile products, construction/maintenance of roads etc.

During the discussions, both sides agreed to strengthen the bilateral trade relationship particularly in the small & medium enterprises (SME) sector.
