Proving its resilience in the midst of the most severe global and regional macro challenges, the Turkish business community has managed to contribute to the growth of the Turkish economy during the Covid-19 pandemic. Türkiye’s robust economic performance, large domestic market of 85 million people, young and dynamic population, diversified industrial base, entrepreneurial culture, and geostrategic location, coupled with the positive effects of the supply chain diversification trends in the world have created significant opportunities for international investors, including M&A opportunities. The Turkish M&A industry reached record high levels in 2021 with significant participation from international investors. Conventional industries and emerging technologies with growth startups attracted both strategic and financial investors from all around the world.
