    Turkey Mining Industry Outlook – Market Opportunities and Entry Strategies, Analyses and Forecasts to 2016

    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.

    The Turkish mining industry grew at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.8% during the review period (2007–2011), and is projected to grow at CAGR of 4.56% over the forecast period. The non-metallic mineral category accounts for the majority of mined resources in Turkey. In 2011, non-metallic minerals represented 51.1% of total Turkish mining production in volume terms, coal accounted for a share of 45.5% of Turkish mining production volume, while metallic minerals accounted for 3.4%.

    Don't be so harsh, I think we may have similar problem with the boron in Turkey, we're only able to mine it, but not turn it into something useful. So we export the raw material which is pretty sad IMO.

    Perhaps Afghanistan is getting something more from the deal and not just have the chinese excavate it. Maybe the deal includes a complete take over in 10-15 years.

    I think Turkey would have offered something similar, with the exception that the workforce would be afghans, but the management would be Turkish. Something to do with work ethics I think. I read an article recently that pointed out how turkish businessmen had success in Iran based on their work ethics.
