Turkish developer Agaoglu has said its foreign sales volume has reached $2 billion following the inauguration of its first international office in Dubai 2013.
Ali Agaoglu, chairman and founder of Agaoglu Group of Companies, said his company, which is developing four new projects worth of $3 billion in Istanbul and Bodrum, including an international financial centre, has been witnessing immense interest from the Gulf countries, particularly in the residential sector in Turkey.
"With its developing economy and strong political stance in recent years, Turkey has become a rising star in the world. With this steady foundation, real estate projects in the country have become appealing investment instruments," said Agaoglu.
Speaking to Khaleej Times at Cityscape Global, Agaoglu said Turkey would continue to be a stable and safe country for investors due to its robust foundation, well-balanced economy, and strong financial and regulatory environment.
"Turkey's economic and political ties with neighboring countries have further enhanced recently and potential investors are confident that Turkey represents tremendous possibilities and numerous opportunities for the local and foreign markets due to its young and dynamic population," he said.
The presence of 104 nationalities who have invested in Agaoglu's projects in Turkey is a testament to the growing acceptance of Turkey as a sought after global investment destination for property buyers, said Agaoglu.
