“The economic ties between Congo and Turky are good and full of potential. There is much to do. As political and diplomatic relations are good, my task is to further develop this cooperation in the economic, social and many other fields”. These words were made, Thursday 10 October 2019 in Brazzaville, by the Turkish Ambassador to Congo, Serhan A. Yigit, at the end of the audience granted to him by Calixte Nganongo, Minister of Finance and Budget.
“I was warmly welcome by the Minister of Finance and Budget, Calixte Nganongo, and by other Congolese Government Ministers. I am confident that together we will accomplish much in the near future” the diplomat said.
As Congo is in its phase of economic diversification, “we are working on this. There are Turkish businessmen already practising in Congo, in the energy sector. I hope I can get other businessmen in my country to invest in other areas. We have every confidence in the economic future of Congo; and in that context, as you know, on July 30, 2019, our National Airline, Turkish Airlines, began serving Congo three times a week”, he said.
