I am facing an interesting challenge.
The Sabanci University in Istanbul has engaged me to deliver two workshops to Turkish software companies preparing for international expansion. The activity is an integrated part of the UR-GE program sponsored by the Turkish Ministry of Economy and The Turkish Export Council aimed at growing the Turkish economy to the G10» by 2023.
G10: The 10 largest economies int the world. Turkey is currently number 17. Making it to the G10 would mean taking the position now held by France. The annual economic growth would have to surpass 7%, surpassing competing economies such as Mexico, South Korea and Indonesia. Making it to the G10 would also mean that in 2023 the Turkish economy would represent >3,75% of global demand where the share today is 0,77%
