Posted 14 March 2017 · Add Comment

Researchers from Istanbul Economics, an independent consultancy company based in Istanbul, have measured the economic impact of Istanbul New Airport.

Above: Progress of the new Instanbul Airport project.

The analysis is 134 pages long. It looks at Turkey’s biggest infrastructure project ever from a holistic point of view, including its macro- and microeconomic impact but also its sociocultural contribution.

The figures they came up with in different scenarios describe the enormity of the multidimensional project.

To name an example, the airport could create up to 225,000 jobs directly and indirectly by the year 2025. It will generate direct foreign investment, push innovations, support the integration of Turkey’s economy in the world market and the dynamic development of Istanbul and will generally strengthen Turkey’s competitive power.
