Investment Office Receives Award at 2024 AIM Investment Awards

​Investment Office was recognized as one of the world's most successful Investment Promotion Agencies (IPA) for its exceptional support of sustainable and innovative investment projects at the AIM Investment Awards 2024 that took place during the Annual Investment Meeting (AIM) in Abu Dhabi.

Global investment agencies participated in the 2024 AIM Investment Awards, evaluated across eight distinct categories, including innovation and R&D collaboration, enhancement of global competitiveness, societal and social impacts, ease of doing business, sector diversity, size of investment, influence on the foreign trade balance, and local connectivity. The evaluation spanned several global regions, including Central Asia-Caucasus and Russia, Europe and Türkiye, Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, the Middle East and North Africa, and the USA and Canada.

The Investment Office was particularly noted for its effective use of an SDG scoring mechanism to prioritize sustainable investments. Meanwhile, highlights of Investment Office's achievements include significant contributions to university-industry collaboration, boosting direct and indirect employment, and advancing female employment and education. The Office also drew attention for enhancing local supply chains, supporting national efforts to reduce imports, fostering education among university students in Türkiye, promoting technology transfer, and aiding the country's "net zero" journey.

The award follows the Investment Office's previous recognition with the "United Nations Conference on Trade and Development's (UNCTAD) Award for Excellence in Promoting Investment in Energy Transition" for its support of the "Enerjisa REZ-II" investment project last year. Regarded as a prestigious event in the region, the AIM Investment Awards once again highlighted Türkiye's capacity to attract investments and its prowess in innovation on the international stage.

Investment Office President A. Burak Dağlıoğlu expressed gratitude, saying, "Under the leadership of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, and guided by our Investment Century vision, our efforts to showcase Türkiye's investment potential on a global scale continue to bear fruit. Following last year's UNCTAD award, we are proud to be recognized once again at the AIM Investment Awards as one of the top-performing IPAs in our region."

“We have set a major goal to increase our share in the global investment market from 1 percent to 1.5 percent. This award is a testament to our determined progress towards this goal, and I would like to thank our team at the Investment Office, our stakeholders in the public and private sectors, and everyone involved for their dedication and effort," Dağlıoğlu concluded.​​
