The Turkish agribusiness sector is an important share of the EBRD portfolio, with more than half a billion Euro already invested, and represents a future pipeline in Turkey. Thus, EBRD intends to increase its work with Turkish agribusinesses and the government to support the sector’s modernisation and competitiveness. The previous study (Phase I) illustrates that support measures to agri-businesses vary significantly across sub-sectors and have impacts on their competitiveness.
The main objectives of the Project continued by Frankfurt School were to further refine the mapping of agribusiness support to selected sub-sectors, its value chains to feed into the technical and policy dialogue with the Turkish government in the agribusiness sector and develop policy advice (Phase II, 2017 – 2018). Phase III of the Project focuses on the design of a monitoring and evaluation (M&E) system for the Turkish agricultural support measures to aid ongoing dialogue with the Turkish government in the agribusiness sector and operationalise the M&E system with a pilot study (2019 – 2020).
