IFAT Eurasia 2019,
Eurasia’s Leading Trade Fair for Environmental Technologies

Spring 2019

Prof. Dr. Veysel Eroğlu, Minister of Forestry and Water Affairs, Turkey:

“IFAT Eurasia in Ankara shows the strong interest of international investors inTurkey. It underlines impressively the importance of the Turkish environmentalsector. We thank everyone involved for making IFAT Eurasia possible.”

Gratiela Leocadia Gavrilesco, Minister of Environment, Water and Forestry, Romania:

“IFAT Eurasia meets an important bridge between Romania and Turkey. Such an event has been missing.”

Eberhard Pohl, German Ambassador in Ankara, Germany:

“I am happy that the successful environmental technology show IFAT has gone to Turkey as IFAT Eurasia. This location is an excellent choice. On the one hand, we have increasing demand for modern environmental technology. Who else is better positioned to serve this demand than the German industry. On the other hand, Turkey acts as a bridge to surrounding markets in the Middle East and Central Asia. That in particular makes IFAT Eurasia attractive to German companies. The number of participants at the show underscores the fact that German companies have realized both.”
