Public Affairs & Government Relations

What is at stake?

Government always has played a significant role for business in Turkey and other emerging markets, especially in highly regulated industries. Regardless of the political party in power, policymakers must consider interests of both the public and private sectors when making decisions that affect business. It is no longer sufficient to have personal relationships. A more comprehensive approach is needed to understand the policymaking environment, as well as interactions between various stakeholders. For this reason, business leaders strive to engage several stakeholders in politics, business, civil society and media in order to create a policy environment favorable to their commercial interests.
