Turkey: a country at the crossroads of Europe, Asia and the Middle East
With an average annual commitment of EUR 300 million, Turkey is an important cooperation country for KfW Development Bank. Turkey forms a link between Europe, Asia and the Middle East in geographical, economic and political terms. At the same time, it borders on several conflict-prone regions.
Since the crisis in Syria, the percentage of refugees that make up the total population of Turkey has been rising steadily, with over 3.5 million Syrian refugees living in Turkey at the beginning of 2019. On behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the EU, KfW supports projects that provide Syrian refugees in Turkey with opportunities for the future through education, vocational training and appropriate infrastructure, while at the same time supporting local communities in coping with the immense population growth.
KfW also finances environmental and climate protection through partner banks – mainly with market funds – and promotes small and medium-sized enterprises.
