An army of Turkish cranes and bulldozers is at work across the Middle East, Central Asia and Africa building dams, stadiums and highways in a boom that's helping drive Turkey to record growth and bolstering its efforts to become a regional power broker.
"People should never forget that those who have closer economic relations with Turkey will prove to be the profit-makers in this region," Mr. Caglayan told the Associated Press. "This applies to the European Union, too."
Turkish firms launched their first projects in Brazil and Angola in 2009, Mr. Caglayan said, and they also are heavily involved in Qatar, Algeria, Iraq, Romania and Afghanistan.
