Investing in Turkey and the Growing Economy

When: March 18, 2015
Where: London, United Kingdom

AxiomSL will be supporting a Middle East Association half-day conference that will focus on Turkey and the growing opportunities for British businesses. Tony Sarkis (Director of Policy and Strategy for the Middle East and Africa) will also participate in two panel discussions which explore financial regulation in Turkey and ‘Market Entry into Turkey’.

Turkey’s recent economic growth record, young workforce, and geographic location as a prime hub for regional market access make Turkey a hugely attractive destination for UK exporters. It is forecast to be the second fastest growing country in the world by 2018 according to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

This event will give an insight into the potential for new market entrants and companies looking to expand their networks. It will also include a case study of a successful British business in the market and the regulatory framework for doing business in Turkey.
