The Turkish economy has been forging ahead with 7.5% GDP growth in 2011 and forecast growth of 3.5% in 2012; driving investment, purchasing power and strong optimism for the future. Turkey is already Europe’s 6th largest economy and a member of the G20. With a young population of over 70 million people, Turkey is a very interesting market in its own right. Its strategic location at the cross-roads of Europe and Asia makes Turkey a compelling growth market.

Enterprise Ireland will organise business networking events in Istanbul and Ankara, where the Minister will be the chief guest. Government led, high profile events of this nature are extremely useful for our client companies as an opportunity to build relationships and establish credibility in the market.

The Trade Mission will visit Istanbul (27th and 28th of March 2012) and Ankara (29th of March 2012). There will be group events happening in both cities. Each event will provide you with a unique opportunity to network with potential business contacts/partners while also allowing you to invite your own key business partner or customer who is based in the Turkey. There will also be PR opportunities for Enterprise Ireland clients who have significant announcements over the course of the Trade Mission.

The objectives of this mission are as follows:

  • To raise Ireland’s profile as a trading partner in Turkey and to emphasise the message “Ireland is open for business”.
  • To increase Irish exports to Turkey.
