International Network

Turkey is a commercial hub for many countries in the region. Headquarters of leading corporations in many sectors are located in Istanbul, focusing on the Balkans, Middle East and Central Asia (including most of the CIS countries).


Visa Free Travel

The Turkish Republic’s visa policy is very relaxed towards citizens of most countries. Many of our buyers and suppliers can travel to Istanbul without the necessity of obtaining a visa before entering the country.



Turkey is a safe and stabile country in key aspects: a constant and steadily growing economy unaffected by the global economic crisis, stable politics, a strong infrastructure and a popular tourism destination.
