Kolkata, June 16: Turkish Ambassador Burak Akcapar said on Tuesday his country is keen to invest in Prime Minister rendra Modi’s Make-In-India campaign, particularly in the manufacturing and construction sectors. “We are looking into the possible opportunities in the context of Make-in-India but no concrete step has been taken. We are looking forward to receiving information and possible visits from India to explain the objectives to which we can contribute,” Akcapar told the media here. He was speaking on the sidelines of the launch of his book ‘People’s Mission to the Ottoman Empire: M.A. Ansari and the Indian Medical Mission, 1912-13' at the Oxford Bookstore on Monday. Reiterating his country’s commitment to a strategic and a “warm” relation with India, the envoy said the key areas of focus would be the manufacturing and construction sectors.
“Turkey can contribute in many respects to the manufacturing capabilities of India. We have a very strong manufacturing sector. Many things that India imports from the world, we are actually exporting,” he said. “We are also strong in infrastructure and construction sectors. Since these two go together, there are many opportunities for Turkey in India but we need India to tell its story also to the Turkish business people,” he added. Modi’s likely visit to Turkey either this year or next year will provide the apt chance to discuss its participation in ‘Make-In-India’ campaign, according to Akcapar. (IANS)
