From 2010 to 2020, the number of innovation carriers in Turkey has increased by 9 times, and the domestic innovation atmosphere is strong.
Trade with Turkey: Trade between the two countries is growing, but Turkey has a large trade deficit with China and is working to close the gap. More and more Chinese are visiting Turkey for tourism and investment.
China-Turkey cooperation: Turkey's huge production capacity, deep cultural and business network in the region, strong trade in services, high-quality talents and a rapidly developing innovation ecosystem, as well as the increasingly stable and close relations between the two countries, all offer great space for China-Turkey cooperation. Now is the best time to do business with Turkey. The people of our two countries need to engage more, build trust, promote cooperation and expand opportunities for cooperation.

During the event
the audience actively asked questions
some of which are very valuable
and the guests also made detailed interpretation
我们如何能够了解到，与我合作的土耳其企业是否是真实的，并且在本地有很好信用的企业呢？How can we know if the Turkish company I work with is real and has good credit in locally?
One is through to the Chinese consulate to verify the commercial counsellor's office. Turkish authorities within government have enterprise registration information. So before sign or do big trnsactions, best to entrust consulate to check again. Secondly is through Turkish chamber of commerce such official association to understand enterprises. Good firms usually enter international and national industry associations, actively participating in the exhibition and activities. And more secure is in the process of chosing partners, through a more safe and effective way. Like through the consulate and business association recommendation, or work with partners that has by the endorsement.
土耳其在哪些行业，支持合作技术创新更加积极主动？In which industries has Turkey been more proactive in supporting collaborative technological innovation?
土耳其除了大家比较熟悉的贸易和旅游，其实土耳其的医疗和电子软件尤其是游戏开发方面是很强并且很有前景的。 现在土耳其大力推进的是医疗旅游（医美，植发，牙科等结合旅游形成项目），以及电子游戏设计开发。 同时土耳其大力推进移动智能化，这一块很多土耳其的投资人和企业都在向中国学习和引入一些平台和技术， 也是中土合作方面值得关注的领域。
In addition to the trade and tourism that we are familiar with, in fact, Turkey's medical treatment and electronic software, especially the gaming industry, are very strong and promising. Now Turkey is vigorously promoting medical tourism (beauty, hair transplantation, dentistry, etc.), and video games development. At the same time, Turkey is vigorously promoting mobile platforms. Many Turkish investors and enterprises are learning from China and introducing some platforms and technologies in this area, which is also an area worthy of attention in the cooperation between China and Turkey.
Sino - international cooperation is a long-term topic
We hope that through our platform,
to build a bridge between China and foreign countries
broaden our horizons and promote more understanding and cooperation
In the future, we will have online meeting
with Germany, Serbia, Israel and other countries
