Turkey's Bilateral Agreements for the Promotion and Protection of Investments
Bilateral Agreements for the Promotion and Protection of Investments were signed from 1962 onwards with countries which have the potential to improve bilateral commercial and investment relations.
The basic aim of these Bilateral Agreements is to establish a favorable atmosphere for economic co-operation between the Contracting Parties by determining the special conditions relating to investments located within the boundaries of the countries concerned. In addition, such agreements also aim to settle disputes that might occur among investors and the State. They also endeavour to clarify the conditions for the expropriation of foreign direct investments by the Contracting Parties.
These agreements are intended to increase the flow of capital between the Parties while ensuring a more stable investment environment. They are not intended to bring any new financial burden to the concerned countries, but to provide economic and legal assurances to foreign investors.
Below is the list of the Bilateral Agreements on the Promotion and Protection of Investments in Turkey which have been signed but not yet approved.
