Turkey motivates companies to invest in Ethiopia

I thought Turkey Was Somalias Big brother kkkk
@Geeljire sanbuur

Turkey had higher hopes for Somalia and they wanted Mogadishu to be the centre of their Africa business and political deals by building the biggest Turkish Embassy in the wold in Mogadishu. However, it seems that they are slowly realising that Alshabaab will be a destructive force for a long time and the squabbles of Somali politicians to be disadvantageous to the long term peace and prosperity in Somalia. They will be entrenched in Somalia as they and Qatar guard closely their influence on the Somali government and members of Parliament. Otherwise, the U.A.E and Saudi Arabia will fill the void. Salafis Vs Muslim Brotherhood. Having said that, Turkey's agenda is to expand to all over Africa and take advantage of the business opportunities in the continent. In politics, there are no permanent friends or foes, only permanent interests and you seek those interests wherever it is available. In politics, only a fool will limit h/her friends.

thats why I said wheres the upside in investing there because I don't see it, especially when theres African countries who have potential and if they figure it out you can see exponential growth like say Congo, for Ethiopia and even turkey I don't see how their economy will grow, Ethiopia has one possibility of growth but they have to put to use what they have and I doubt that
 
Turkey Is Quietly Building Its Presence In Africa.

When you think of big investors in Africa, the United States, China, Britain and France may come to mind. But over the past decade, Turkey has been steadily raising its profile in Africa, including in some of the most troubled countries on the continent.

Dozens of African government ministers milled about an Istanbul hotel ballroom recently, planning for next year's African Union-Turkey Cooperation Summit. During a break in the meeting, Abdulkadir Ahmed-Kheir Abdi, Somalia's state minister for foreign affairs, praised Turkey's assistance to his country plagued by famine, civil war and an Islamist insurgency.

"Turkey came to Somalia first in 2011, when no one dared to go to Somalia," he said. "There was a drought, there was a famine, there [were] terrorist activities there, and everyone stayed away."

When President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his wife got off the plane in Mogadishu and visited a camp full of starving children, Abdi said it was a powerful moment. And when Turkey pledged aid and signed trade agreements, he said, other countries followed.

"So for us as Somalis, Turkey is in our heart because of the help they provide in the time of need," Abdi said.

Since 2003, when current President Erdogan began serving as his country's prime minister, Turkey has been a growing player in Africa.

Erdogan has made more than 30 visits to the continent since coming to power, including a visit earlier this month to Algeria, Mauritania, Senegal and Mali. He returned calling the tour "productive," and tweeted, "We want to walk with Africa while a new world order is being established."

Analysts say Turkey has a host of motivations, from cultural to economic to geopolitical.

In the last 15 years, Turkey's trade with African countries has grown sixfold to $17.5 billion, according to the official Anadolu news agency. Much of that trade is with North African countries like Egypt, but Turkey is also expanding its presence south of the Sahara. There are now over 40 Turkish embassies in Africa, and state-controlled Turkish Airlines flies to more than 50 African destinations. Last fall, Turkey opened a military base in Somalia, its first in Africa and the largest of its overseas bases.


Turkish Armed Forces Chief of Staff Gen. Hulusi Akar, center, and Somali Prime Minister Hassan Ali Khayre, second left, tour a new Turkey-Somali military training center in Mogadishu, Somalia, on Sept. 30.

If you get sick in Somalia, you may be treated at the Recep Tayyip Erdogan Hospital. Visitors arrive at an airport terminal run by a Turkish company, and travel on roads built by Turkey's development authority. Garbage collection is handled by the Turkish Red Crescent.

There are questions, however. Critics among international nongovernmental organizations and pro-transparency groups note that Turkey's involvement was facilitated by noncompetitive Somali contracts awarded by a state notorious for its corruption. Following advisers' recommendations, the government in Mogadishu has begun renegotiating some of those contracts.

Somalia isn't the only troubled African state where Turkey is making a splash. Turkey is also boosting its presence in Sudan. Erdogan recently address the Sudanese parliament and spoke warmly of the country's strongman Omar al-Bashir, who is accused of war crimes by the
nternational Criminal Court.

"Me and my brother al-Bashir will talk business, and I'm sure we will leave this place with handshakes on a number of big partnerships," Erdogan said.

Sudan granted Turkey a long-term lease and rights to restore Ottoman-era buildings on Sudan's Suakin Island in the Red Sea. The island was once a stopover for Muslim pilgrims heading to Mecca.

Sedat Aybar, director of the Africa Research Center at Istanbul's Aydin University, says burnishing Turkey's credentials as a defender of Muslim heritage is part of the motivation for the Suakin Island restoration project. The government is interested in "reactivating the Turkish memory chip" about the Turks' presence in African territories the Ottoman Empire controlled until the late 1800s, he says.

This, he says, "is a very important part of restoration of ruined Islamic sites on the island."

But the primary motivation for the country's push into Africa is economic.

Africa has natural resources that Turkey needs for its manufacturing and industrial sectors, including oil and gas, and Africa needs income, infrastructure and jobs for its people.

Aybar sees Turkey's military presence in Somalia more as a long-term economic investment than a show of Turkish might.

With large areas of Somalia still under the control of al-Shabab extremists, Aybar says a better security environment is key to improving the East African country's economy.

And that helps Turkey too, he says: "A stable and more secure Somalia will provide Turkey with more positive economic returns."

No upside in either as turkey could nog get into eu despite the fact that they can destroy it with mass migration plus only oil will not help ethipoia even pay off their loans as they can barely feed their people without outside help

Ethiopia has major upside if they use their strengths to their advantage, I've realized this and may go there someday to make major bank, their potential lies in their poor and numerous population, they are over 100 million who are dirt poor to the extent they are coming to Somaliland and puntland as refugees,
this means they have potential to be the cheapest labour force in the world and out compete china for American production jobs like making nike shoes and putting together iPhones :denzelnigga: thats why I was thinking maybe getting contracts with American companies and opening factories there using the china blueprint but even cheaper prices to outcompete them:mjlaugh: thats stupid bank right there, but yeah outside of human resource they have nothing

They've a point. Somalia has a strong and good relationship with Ethiopia. Although Turkey's agenda in Africa is to receive returns on their investments in Africa, it built roads, hospitals, schools and government buildings in Somalia. It also spearheaded the restoration of the validity of the Somali government on the international arena. With that said, they always side with Somalia when the issue comes to Somaliland's recognition.
