Turkey, the 17th largest economy in the world, has been one of the fastest growing emerging economies in income per capita and urbanization in the last decade. Its strategic location, young and rapidly growing labor force, and strong infrastructure and services have attracted large influx of foreign investment. Since 2012, however, Turkey’s economic growth has slowed and is facing ongoing strong external and internal headwinds, with its economic growth and investors’ confidence weighed down by political and geopolitical uncertainties, policy unpredictability, and lack of transparency in its business climate. This webcast will focus on what it will take for Turkey to revive its economy and realize its potential growth.
