The agency said in Thursday’s report, translated by “Arabi 21”, that Aramco representatives met with executives of about 80 contracting companies in the Turkish capital, Ankara, on Tuesday and Wednesday, in order to qualify them to implement projects planned until 2025.
The head of the Turkish Contractors Union, Erdal Eren, said that Aramco asked Turkish companies to submit their qualifications to participate in the implementation of projects scheduled until the end of 2025, including large strategic projects.
Eren pointed out that Aramco is seeking the largest Turkish participation in its projects, including infrastructure projects, oil refineries, pipelines, and administrative complexes, with a total value of $50 billion.
He explained that Aramco is conducting an evaluation of the companies, and will determine who is chosen to participate in the tenders, while a meeting will be held between the Saudi and Turkish sides soon in Saudi Arabia, to discuss the next steps.
The head of the Turkish Contractors Union indicated that this opportunity is important for Turkish companies, which suffered great losses as a result of the war between Russia and Ukraine, as well as the decline of government projects in Turkey as a result of the earthquake disaster.

And the development of projects related to these areas.
The two parties also agreed on developing productive and investment partnerships in the fields of artificial intelligence, digital technologies and smart cities, and encouraging private sector actors working in these areas to cooperate, according to a joint statement.
