SINDIRGI, the insider tip for investors
Sindirgi, a small town with a population of approximately 40000 people, lies within the boundaries of Balikesir province in the northwestern part of Turkey.
Once a blooming town on the main road interconnecting Turkey’s biggest city and financial center Istanbul with its third biggest city Izmir, Sindirgi experienced a regression after a new main road between these big cities was built leaving Sindirgi beyond the high-volume traffic axis. The rebirth of this beautiful town steeped in history and surrounded by intact nature came with the discovery of its huge potentials in thermal tourism, mining and greenhouse farming in recent years. Currently, international investors from Germany, France, Italy, Greece, Egypt and Russia are investing in the region.
