Following the sale of 46 percent of shares in Finansbank to the National Bank of Greece, other Greek banks are conducting thorough surveys for possible investment in Turkey.
Turkish-Greek Business Council President Selim Egeli said Friday that foreign trade exceeded $2 billion with an increase in over 100 percent after the diplomatic and political obstacles between the two countries disappeared.
The Ege Enterprise Bank will be established through a joint enterprise of Turkish and Greek businessmen as part of venture, Egeli said, who thinks the Turkish banking infrastructure is solid and the trained labor force is exceptional. "There are few places in the world more suitable than Turkey for banking."
Greek banks are conducting works in other neighboring countries as well.
