Turkey a country that occupies a unique geographic position, lying partly in Asia and partly in Europe. Throughout its history it has acted as both a barrier and a bridge between the two continents.
Turkey is situated at the crossroads of the Balkans, Caucasus, Middle East, and eastern Mediterranean. It is among the larger countries of the region in terms of territory and population, and its land area is greater than that of any European state. Nearly all of the country is in Asia, comprising the oblong peninsula of Asia Minor—also known as Anatolia (Anadolu)—and, in the east, part of a mountainous region sometimes known as the Armenian Highland. The remainder—Turkish Thrace (Trakya)—lies in the extreme southeastern part of Europe, a tiny remnant of an empire that once extended over much of the Balkans.
Turkey is one of the largest emerging markets in the world. The country’s geographical location and overall global economic power makes Turkey an attractive place for investors worldwide. It is the 17th largest economy in the world with a nominal GDP of USD 849.48 billion, which is set to be part of the Trillion-dollar Club in 2020. Only 16 countries are in this club.
The country has outstanding infrastructure that makes transport within major cities in Turkey convenient and reliable. With easy access to several airports all year round, your journey home is normally within half an hour in most popular locations.
