Bank Asya keen to expand biz in India

Bank Asya is eager to achieve bilateral trade between the Indian and Turkish economies worth $15 billion over the next five years. Officials of the Turkish Islamic lender Bank Asya were in Mumbai to discuss the rapidly growing business ties between India and Turkey. The proximity of financial institutes between the two economies would benefit business and trade, according to Cenk Karacaoglu, Vice President, Bank Asya, Turkey. The rapidly growing Indian economy presents huge potential for business and trade with Turkey, he added. The bank will further expand business with Indian companies. Bank Asya has agreed to offer Shariah compliant banking facilities in India and was awaiting the regulator's nod.
