SWIFT Business Forum - Turkey 2014

Report of event


A day of lively discussion highlighted the immense opportunities present in Turkey in terms of natural geopolitical advantage and economic potential and resilience, as well as the challenges facing the country as it moves to achieve its ambitions.

Keynote speaker Murat Çetinkaya, Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Turkey, stressed that Turkey’s goal to establish Istanbul as a regional and later a global financial centre is very achievable. “The time is right for this project; Turkey is in a good position,” he said.

Mr Çetinkaya noted that in a period when the impact of the global financial crisis is still being felt, Turkey’s policy framework has enabled the economy to perform well, working in line with the G20’s reform agenda and regulation of global financial market infrastructure towards the prevention of systemic risk.
