East Anatolia Observatory (DAG) is the new observatory of Turkey with the optical (VIS) and near-infrared (NIR) largest telescope (4 m mirror) and its robust observing site infrastructure. This national project consists of three phases with DAG (telescope, enclosure, building, infrastructure), FPI (Focal Plane Instruments and Adaptive Optics) and MCP (Mirror Coating Plant) and is supported by the Ministry of Development of Turkey. Almost all infrastructure (roads, geological and atmospheric surveys, electricity, fiber optics, water, generator, etc.) of DAG site (Erzurum/Turkey, 3170 m altitude) have been completed. The recent developments (telescope, enclosure, mirror, focal plane instruments, building, atmospheric studies, etc.) of DAG and its site in 2017 and 2018 were presented for the future possible collaborations for various astronomical instruments and telescopes which can be set up in DAG site.
