The New Turkey
The FT Turkey Summit is the premium gathering for international investors, senior government officials and leading Turkish corporations.
The 4th annual FT Turkey Summit will examine the increasingly significant role of Turkey on the global stage, the positive shifts in the political and business landscape that are drawing international investors to its shores, and some of the challenges to expect along the way.
Taking place after a year of political and economic instability – including an unprecedented two general elections in a matter of months - our speakers and audience will look at the impact and implications of new developments on the following fronts:
The Economic Front: At a time when much of the shine has worn off emerging markets, is Turkey more fragile than ever - or is it making the necessary changes?
The Political Front: After two elections in 2015 and the country’s leading parties’ big problems in working together, where are we withthe new administration? Will this prove to be the hoped-for new era of less politics, more policy?
The Diplomatic Front: Can Turkey insulate itself from turbulence to its south and east, given increased tensions with the Islamic State of the Iraq and the Levant and the rekindling of the country’s Kurdish conflict.
The Corporate Front: What does Turkey need to do to get the inward investment it needs? And how does the country, which has the OECD’s lowest rate of female participation on the labour force, plan to improve gender diversity?
