The business world is eagerly awaiting economic reforms following the Nov. 1 elections that brought the Justice and Development Party (AKP) to power alone, said Güler Sabancı, the chairwoman of one of the largest conglomerates of the country.

“The voters have given the AKP the authority to sustain unity again and found a one-party government. We have no time to lose,” said the leader of Sabancı Holding, while speaking at the Turkish Innovation Week event held by the Turkish Exporters Assemly (TİM) in the Sabancı’s hometown of Adana.

“We are eagerly waiting for the reforms to be realized in the first 100 days [of the government],” she said.

Finland was the partner country for this year’s event that brought together representatives from leading business organizations in the country.

“Turkey and Finland have a very good relationship” said Nina Vaskunlahti, Finland’s Ambassador to Turkey.

“This will develop,” she said, highlighting cultural closeness between the two countries.
