Turkey is set to build an economic zone in Djibouti as part of the former's efforts to encourage the Turkish business community to invest in the Horn of Africa nation at a large scale and to boost economic cooperation between the two countries, a Djiboutian minister said.
"The Turkish companies will assemble and process goods and thereby easily export them to East African region and overseas," Djiboutian Finance and Economic Minister Elias Moussa Daweleh told The Anadolu Agency in an exclusive interview.
"The economic zone will create job opportunities for Djiboutian along with facilitating fertile economic conditions to Turkish investors," the minister added.
