Why Turkey is so important For Europe?


The country on the Bosporus is not only geopolitically important but also economically: as a tourist destination, trading partner and very important transit country for raw materials. A commentary by Cornelia Meyer.

“The Istanbul Finance Summit brought together some of the most influential speakers in Turkey as well as from across the globe and was highly valuable for investors like myself that came from the United States and look for global investment opportunities. It is clear that Turkey has embarked on an irreversible path of deregulation and wealth accretion which will continue for the foreseeable future. Istanbul’s strategic location can also make it a super regional financial center which can serve the rapidly growing markets in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Central Asia and Africa. Turkish companies are highly dynamic in their external expansion and further deregulation by the government and tax incentives can boost an already high growth trajectory for the economy. It was a pleasure to speak at the conference and I look forward to coming to Istanbul in future years.”

“By following the content of the agenda  and with its guests,  IFS’14 has been an important event this year, as well.

Efforts to make Istanbul the finance center, with its  panel topics such as venture fund, islamic finance in which innovative finance instruments were discussed, were all greeted positively by the participants and were very  informative.

Within this scope, i would like express my gratitude to IFS team for their successful efforts.”
