Turkey is regarded as being one of the most important trade centers in the world due to its geopolitical position which is the closest common location between the continents of Europe, Asia and Africa. Connecting the continents of Europe and Asia with Istanbul’s Bosphorus Straight, Turkey allows thousands of companies across the world a means of delivering their products using the shortest possible route. Turkey offers great advantages by providing transportation routes to Russia through the Black Sea, to Europe through the Aegean Sea and to the rest of the world through Mediterranean sea. Costs such as distribution and transportation are minimized by the opportunity for faster logistics through the transformation of the Mediterranean region into a trade zone with its ports along the Mediterranean coastline.
Generous land where seasons meet! The fact that Turkey is surrounded by seas in three sides, coupled with the diversity of the country’s landforms makes it possible for various different types of climates to occur. While Mediterranean and Black Sea climates are found the coastal regions of Turkey, the effects of continental climate are more evident as you travel inland and eastward. Due to its climatic advantages, Turkey has the potential of being able to produce and market numerous agricultural products at certain standards throughout the year. This potential, stemming mostly from geographical advantages places Turkey among the ranks of the world’s largest producers in the area of agriculture and related industrial branches. Countless agricultural products demanded throughout the world are produced in Turkey in a cost effective manner due to the country’s climatic and geographical advantages.
Generous lands; the source of a strong economy! In recent years, Turkey has attained some of the fastest economic growth rates in the world and has become an important center for investment due to its geopolitical location, fertile land and young, dynamic population.
