Bill Gates buy land in Turkey

The American entrepreneur, programmer, billionaire, businessman, and world's richest person in many respects, Bill Gates, has a new goal to become a "land baron". Gates, the founder of Microsoft and the world's fourth-richest person, became the largest landowner in the United States with his investments in land in recent years. He is believed to own more than one million acres of land, and he is making these investments not only in the US but also in many countries around the world. Billionaire businessman Gates, who is believed to be approaching the global climate and food crisis every day, has shifted his investments to land, taking into account the productive land, climate, and location of Turkey, which has always been the apple of civilizations' eyes. It is learned that Gates has also acquired land in Turkey, where he is believed to have bought 22,000 acres of agricultural land in Kırklareli and Edirne, according to the latest rumors. Moreover, it is claimed that Gates had previously bought land in Turkey and currently owns a total of 56,000 acres of land.


Gates' interest in Turkey has also attracted the attention of foreign investors.

Reports of Bill Gates buying land in Turkey have been covered in the international press. In particular, Gates' vacationing on luxury yachts in Turkey during the summer months has attracted the interest of other foreign investors. Mehmet Zeki Adlı, the General Manager of the Land Registry and Cadastre at the Ministry of Environment, Urbanization, and Climate Change, stated that 68,600 properties were sold to foreigners in 2021. Adlı emphasized that out of the 68,600 properties sold to foreigners, 64,500 were residential, and the remaining 4,000 were land, gardens, and other areas. He also noted that the total value of property transactions recorded in the registry exceeded approximately 40 billion Turkish liras. In Turkey, where agricultural land has recently become a focus of attention due to its high and consistent income, foreign investors are also knocking on the doors of agricultural consultancy firms. Agrolidya, the leading company in this field in Turkey, is becoming the eyes, ears, and hands of foreign investors, particularly those from abroad.
