Turkey is the world’s 16th largest economy. It is described as dynamic and a leader in the region. As its markets, entrepreneurs and businesses grow, the country is expected to be among the top 10 global economies by 2020. That would be great news if the country didn’t lag behind socially. To change that, TPF has identified four causes to focus our efforts in Turkey.
