President Erdoğan: Africa has an exceptional place in our hearts

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan delivered a speech at the Turkey-Africa III. Economic and Business Forum in Istanbul.

Wishing that the forum would contribute to the strengthening of the cooperation between Turkey and Africa, President Erdoğan underscored that mutual investment opportunities in a wide range of areas, including energy, agriculture, healthcare, banking system and innovation, were discussed at the forum, and added: “Competent participants have shared their views on policies that will mobilize the potential between Turkey and the countries in the continent. Besides the strong aspects of our cooperation, the topics that we should work on together have also been discussed and assessed. I believe the issues raised here will guide us in our efforts to further our relations with the continent.”

The President stated: “I express on every occasion the exceptional place Africa has in our hearts. We prove by our works across the country that our affection towards our African brothers and sisters is not merely rhetoric.”
