Infrastructure investment is being driven by economic growth, the country’s increasing importance in international trade, and its potential to become a member state of the European Union. As well as providing technical solutions, we have been helping plan investments and advising on project finance.
We worked for the agency of the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs, EVD, helping the Turkish Export Promotion Centre, IGEME, to strengthen its capacity to train Turkish enterprises in international trade and business with other European countries. Our team helped IGEME to improve the image of the Turkish business sector as a partner, to align trade promotion activities with enterprise needs, and to enhance business support networks.
Another key assignment, the Strengthening the Turkish Patent Institute project, aimed to promote the use of industrial property rights in the country’s small and medium enterprise (SME) sector to enhance innovation and competitiveness. Our team acted as team leader, providing expertise on SME development, capacity building, and information and communication.
