Turkey will help the semi-autonomous region of Iraq, Kurdistan, to establish a housing institution similar to the Housing Development Administration of Turkey (TOKİ), local media reported Friday.
Turkey’s Science, Industry and Technology Minister Nihat Ergün said that TOKI will be used as a model by the regional government of northern Iraq after a meeting he held with Kurdish Regional Government (KRG) in Ankara.
KRG Industry and Trade Minister Sinan Çelebi said Turkey was their role model, pointing out that they would examine the structure of TOKİ in order to have a similar institution within the KRG and they have already advanced in the process, reported Anatolia news agency.
Çelebi also said they would conduct research on industrial zones in Turkey, adding that they realized the poverty of the country after the collapse of late President Saddam Hussein’s regime in 2003
Turkish construction firms have taken a large part in northern Iraq’s restructuration, according to Çelebi.
