Copernicus Increases Trade Opportunities for SMEs to Do Business with Turkey

The Copernicus International consulting network is now open for business in their new partner office which can be found at Izmir, Turkey following the completion of their cooperation agreement with Set Sourcing consultants.

The Izmir office will provide enhanced Copernicus market entry services such as opportunity assessment, feasibility studies, location analysis, partner identification, incubation centre, sales and marketing support to companies from all corners of the Globe who are looking to enter the rapidly developing Turkish market, and vice versa from Turkey to global markets via the expanding Copernicus international offices. With this in mind the organization will actively promote international trade opportunities for Turkish market strategic entry, distribution potential and of course mutual collaboration. These will include a series of International Business Events, Business Clinics and Increasing Market Awareness seminars both in Turkey and the multiple international markets where Copernicus is actively represented.

Time to do business in Turkey
• Now ranked 6th emerging economy in Europe and 15th in the world
• 45% of Turkish foreign trade volume is already with the EU
• The gateway to trade with the wider region
• Strong trade relations with the neighbouring countries
• Stable economic structure
• Historic trading culture

Talking about the agreement, company owner Rabeno Sagman who will oversee international cooperation projects, said that "It is an agreement where two firms that are well-known, respected and with complementary areas of practice will combine their experience and skill sets and generate business opportunities for our communal clients. This is an important step towards assisting overseas companies, especially SMEs in doing business in the region and also a channel for Turkish Companies as they expand into new overseas territories"

Colin Jones, Head of International Development at Copernicus Consulting said that "We are very excited about this development. We have been members of the Turkish British Chamber of Commerce for some time now having identified Turkey as an important trading partner for UK and indeed international companies in the years ahead. It is likely that we will see many more European, US and Asian companies looking to win early market share in Turkey and to establish trade relations for long term gains."

It is becoming apparent to UK, European and US businesses that there are many profitable business or partnering opportunities with Turkish companies to be had. Companies are beginning to recognise the possibilities for business in Turkey, but may be unable to take full advantage of them fully from their domestic markets as they need to set up a base or establish a trading partnership in order to fully exploit the opportunities. Copernicus provides such support along with its many market entry and development services.
