Istanbul to host World Economic Forum meeting

The annual meetings of the World Economic Forum (WEF) which are usually held in the Swiss town of Davos will instead be held in Istanbul from this year on.

Cuneyd Zapsu, a member of the WEF, said in reference to the meeting in Istanbul: “This will not be a one-time thing.” Zapsu also stated that the meeting will be held from June 19 to June 22 next year.

The meeting will see people from all over the world, Europe, The Middle East, North Africa, and Central Asia all come together to discuss policies and the world’s economic situations.

Turkey is gaining a stronger and stronger foothold in the world. The strong Turkish economy coupled with the unique situation Turkey is in, sees Turkey becoming one of the strongest nations in the world. Turkey is currently only behind China in terms of economic growth this year and the meeting next year in Istanbul further affirms Turkey’s position as a power nation in the world.
