Turkey’s Setur Marinas to manage a Greek marina in Lesbos Island

  • Published by Vedat

Greece's luxury retailer Folli Follie and Turkish conglomerate Koc Holding have teamed up to operate a small marina on the Greek island of Lesbos (Midilli).

The deal, announced by both firms on Friday, comes as debt-laden Greece pins its hopes on tourism to kick-start an economy now in the fifth straight year of recession.

Folli and Turkey's Setur Servis Turistik, a unit of Koc Holding, have signed a contract to operate Mytilene (Midilli) Marina on the Aegean island of Lesbos near Turkey for 40 years for 250,000 euros annually.

According to the Greek-Turkish Chamber of Northern Greece, the country ranks among the top five foreign investors in Turkey with more than 4.56 billion euros in the last five years.

Its biggest investment was completed in 2007, when its largest lender National Bank acquired Finansbank, paying a total of about 4 billion euros.

Turkish investments in Greece are mainly in food retail and clothing.
