Investment demand in Turkey this January to September was 13% higher than the same period last year, the country’s industry and technology minister said on Thursday.

At 73%, the manufacturing sector accounted for the lion’s share of the demand, Mustafa Varank said on Twitter.

“Confidence in Turkey’s present and future is increasing,” he said.

Some 13% of the investments are in the energy sector, followed by the services industry at 10%, and agriculture and mining with 2% each.
