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 EU. 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, strengthen its capacity to train Turkish enterprises in international trade and business with other European countries. Our team assisted IGEME in improving the image of the Turkish business sector as a partner, to align trade promotion activities with enterprise needs and to enhance the business support networks.
Another key assignment – Strengthening the Turkish Patent Institute project – aimed to promote the use of industrial property rights among 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.
