Doing business in Turkey

Turkey enjoys a fast-growing economy which looks set to become a leading light in Europe. Turkey is considered to be a gateway market as it is perfectly situated between the Asian, European, Slavic and Middle Eastern regions. This makes Turkey an ideal location to set up business to attempt to enter the markets found in these regions.

Turkey is already Europe’s 6th largest economy and is likely to be in the world’s top 10 economies by 2023. It also has the youngest population in Europe and is close to joining the EU. These facts all make Turkey a strong contender for expanding a business into Europe. One potential downside to doing business in Turkey is the fact that legislation has a tendency to change without warning which can leave businesses in the lurch.

After Germany and Iraq, The UK is already the 3rd largest importer into Turkey. This means that the two countries enjoy good economic relations. Currently, the healthcare and energy industries are enjoying a period of growth. As a result, UK suppliers of products in these industries are highly sought after.
