  • It is really good presentation. I know that there are a lot of HiTech companies establishing and most of them getting really successful results. One of my american friend told me in Palo Alto that some of silicon valley companies are trying to open offshore company in Turkey.
    Anyways, thanks for your presentation.

  • Shay, you are so wrong. ISIS can't attack Turkey. As you can see http://www.globalfirepower.com/ said that Turkey is the 8th best global firepower in the world. Right now, ISIS is in Iraq and Syria.

    Mor, I partially agree with you but you must know Turkey isn't an Arabic Country. Today, our goverment can be promuslim but our country is still secular. And you must know one thing rules the world and it is not religion it is money. Our goverment totally liberal and supporter of the free economy. In addition they like money.
    I don't like our goverment because of they want to be an muslim country. As you said, they are against some revolutions of Atatürk. I am grateful to Atatürk and his revolution. In addition, most of tech company founders in Turkey are secular.

  • How can Turkey become a lighthouse for modern Hi-Tech innovation, as it becomes more and more a totalitarian Muslim country, taking back all of the blessed revolutions of Camal Ata Turk?!
