Turkey’s cultural and business duality
Turkey is a democratic and constitutional republic that is a combination of both European and Middle Eastern cultural heritages. Located in Eurasia, Turkey is bordered by eight countries including Bulgaria, Greece, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Iran, Iraq and Syria. Through its ties and memberships in organizations such as the Council of Europe, NATO, OECD, OSCE and the G-20 major economies, Turkey is experiencing rapid growth and currently has the world’s 15th largest GDP.
Its large population (74.7 million) consisting of mostly of Turks (76 %) and Kurds (15.7 %) and minority groups of Armenians, Greeks and Jews (8.3 %) make this increasingly modern society an interesting market with many diverse cultural sub-segments.Turkish society is marked by the high prioritization that individuals place on family, friends and various community groups. And with many of the businesses in Turkey family-owned, the role of the family in one’s business network has a significant impact in business negotiations. It is important to recognize and respect these distinctive traits of doing business in Turkey.
