Professor Mehmet Babacan from Medipol University and Central Bank of Turkey has given a talk as part of our Economics seminar series. The participants were given the opportunity to review the book “Turkish Economy: Between Middle Income Trap and High Income Status” edited by Professor Babacan along with Ahmet Faruk Aysan, Nurullah Gur, and Hatice Karahan. Professor Babacan provided an in-depth analysis of the industrial trends in Turkey during the last 15 years. Moreover, projections over the future of manufacturing sector and construction sector has been presented to the participants. The seminar has been immensely helpful for our international students on the path to discover a new understanding towards Turkish Economy. We would like to thank Professor Babacan for providing us with the opportunity to learn from his experience in the field.
