This webinar will give a brief introduction to doing business in Turkey. Turkey, due to her location at the crossroads of Europe and Asia, is a true melting pot. To understand Turkey one must start with the history of the place, the people, religion, and the language. Modern Turkey was founded after the collapse of Ottoman Empire following the First World War; social, economic, and political scars are still part of the psyche of the country. The webinar will cover the recent developments in the country and the region.
