Incentives draw Japan Inc. to Turkish midlands

ISTANBUL -- Turkey's underdeveloped inland areas are getting some new residents: Japanese manufacturers.

Sumitomo Rubber and Turkey's AKO are preparing to start this joint plant in north-central Turkey's Cankiri Province.

     These companies are being attracted by ample low-cost labor and tax incentives offered by the government. Some Japanese manufacturers have teamed up with Turkish partners to build plants in inland provinces. Ankara's efforts to woo foreign businesses to the nation's center are starting to bear fruit.
