Meeting: Enterprise Policy - Regional Perspective
January 21, 2015Ankara, Turkey

The World Bank and Turkish Ministry of Development are co-hosting a meeting to present two projects aimed at boosting Turkey's investment climate and helping to build regional and central government capacity for continuous investment climate improvements.

The most recent Turkey Investment Climate Assessment completed by the World Bank in 2010 revealed wide variation in the quality of the business environment across regions and how firms operating in different regions tend to be affected by various aspects of the investment climate.

The Regional Investment Climate Assessment Project will help identify bottlenecks to doing business at regional level across the country. Identification of these bottlenecks is the first step in removing them and promoting private sector development at the regional level in Turkey.
