ISTANBUL - US-based companies are increasingly interested in Turkey, as they consider the country as a gateway to markets, such as northern Iraq, Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan, says Rahşan Cebe, chairwoman of the American Business Forum in Turkey. Construction sector is especially attractive, she says

U.S.-based companies are increasingly interested in using Turkey as a gateway to enter markets in northern Iraq, Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan, according to Rahşan Cebe, the newly elected chairwoman of American Business Forum in Turkey, or ABFT.

"The ABFT is currently getting a lot of inquiries from U.S. firms interested in doing business in northern Iraq in cooperation with Turkish firms," said Cebe, who was appointed to the two-year post last week and is also managing partner at Cushman & Wakefield’s Istanbul operation. "A lot of U.S. construction firms, for example, know Turkish companies are very active in northern Iraq, and are looking to enter the market in cooperation with them."

Cebe, a law graduate from the London School of Economic and Political Science, told the Hürriyet Daily News & Economic Review that U.S. firms are increasingly interested in investing in Turkey, but that there is still a need to further develop the regulatory side of things.
