11th International Turkish - African Congress

  • “Future of the African Economy and Turkey”
While particularly the policies for creating a sphere of influence towards the regions out of Africa was limited to a large extent in terms of economic international relations, it is seen that the Continent offers more favorable opportunities to Turkey when considering the factors, such as the improvement and development level, the human resources and the natural resources of the African continent. And the needs, such as overcoming the political and diplomatic crises seen in the Middle East in the recent period more easily, preventing Turkey from becoming isolated in the field of diplomacy, necessitate the development of relations with the African countries in every sector.

Expanding the market for the Turkish export goods, limiting terrorism, enhancing the security measures, and sharing the experiences in the fields of energy and technology depend on the development of relations with the African countries. Within this scope, it is aimed at contributing to the multi-dimensional strategical relations of Turkey - Africa and the reciprocal capacity building thanks to the 11th International Turkish - African Congress, which will be held with the main theme of the "Future of the African Economy and Turkey" and in which the representatives of various sectors, institutions and organizations will come together within the framework of the Turkish - African relations.
