"The EBRD has engaged extensively with the agricultural sector in Turkey, recognising its importance as the source of employment for a quarter of Turkey’s workforce. We are an active direct equity investor in agribusiness and the majority of our investment is outside Istanbul. Our first corporate equity investment in the country’s agribusiness sector was in Tiryaki, here in Gaziantep.We have also focused on investments in the energy sector, where our aim has always been to help Turkey achieve energy independence.To date, the Bank has financed the two biggest wind farms in the country, Rotor and Bares, along with several other wind farms, geothermal powerpower plants and hydroelectric stations. We will continue to look for similar investment opportunities in this sector in the future.In the infrastructure sector, we have played a key role in the financing of the Eurasia Tunnel in Istanbul. This is the first public-private partnership (PPP) in the road sector which will serve as a blueprint for other crucial PPP investments in the future. We hope these will include opportunities in the municipal infrastructure sector. At the EBRD we believe that the way forward for municipalities is to adopt a commercial approach and to create financially independent utility companies to run water, transport and other services. This approach provides the opportunity to involve private sector investors through PPP schemes."
