Mining exploration will be an attractive investment opportunity in Turkey over the forecast period. According to a government organization, Turkish Coal Enterprises, Turkey is rich in mineral wealth which has only been partially explored and is currently underdeveloped. This could create massive growth prospects for mining companies in Turkey and opportunities for new businesses. Moreover, the economic prospects in Turkey are expected to remain positive over the forecast period, which suggests a massive opportunity for growth for mining companies over the forecast period. Further, the Turkish government has encouraged foreign investments through its liberal FDI policy and its planned accession to the EU. Fulfilling the accession criteria for joining the EU forced the Turkish government to initiate a series of political, economic and governance reforms in the country. These reforms have encouraged more transparency in business interactions and privatization, which created a favorable operating environment for the mining industry during the review period.
