Turkey has experienced impressive economic growth in recent years. Due to its strategic location between Europe, Russia, Central Asia and the Middle East, as well as its young and well-educated population and diversified economy Turkey has become an attractive destination for foreign investors.  In 2012 Turkey ranked as the 13th most attractive destinations for Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) according to AT Kearney FDI Confidence Index. However, Turkey is also a complex and often non-transparent market. Cultural, linguistic or economic hurdles can prevent especially small and medium-sized companies from establishing business ties with Turkey.

The idea to establish Öger Consulting arose from this context: Turkey’s great investment potential on the one hand, but also the great uncertainty many companies face when deciding whether to enter the market.

Vural Öger has worked to strengthen commercial, cultural and political ties between Germany and Turkey for over 40 years. He is widely regarded as a role model for bilateral entrepreneurship. Vural Öger saw Turkey’s potential as a travel spot and turned it into one of Germany’s favourite holiday destinations.

Over the years numerous executives have solicited his advice regarding investment and market entry strategies in Turkey, and projects designed to foster German-Turkish business cooperation. As an answer, he founded Öger Consulting as an umbrella for investment and cooperation projects between Turkey and Germany.

The goal of Öger Consulting is to help companies successfully enter the Turkish market or to optimize existing business relations. Öger Consulting develops minimal risk investment strategies for the Turkish market, acts as mediators in difficult negotiations, identifies new business and distribution partners, and handles strategic public relations in Turkey. Our large network of contacts allows Öger Consulting to set up important meetings with local leaders in business and politics– both within and far beyond the country’s major cities.
