Following the success of their November event, Turkey’s UK Commercial Attaché Aytuğ Göksu, award-wining financial advisers Accounting Direct Plus and Turkey’s largest bank Türkiye İş Bank are re-running their seminar ‘Setting up and Doing Business in Turkey’.

With a population of 78 million, Turkey offers trade and consumer focussed businesses a fantastic opportunity to grow. It also serves as an important gateway into Central Asia, the Middle East and Africa, with many companies using Istanbul as their regional headquarters.

This 2.5 hour event allows British investors to learn about the core aspects of trading in Turkey, and a chance to quiz the experts on diverse issues, such as banking, taxation, and legalities of trading.

Entry is £25 per person – attendees should pre-register online. There are refreshments and an opportunity to network once the talks are over.
