Event planned to boost Turkish-Slovak ties

The Turkish Embassy in Bratislava is holding an event to improve relations between the Turkish and Slovak business communities and government officials.

The embassy hopes their October 16 event, called Turkey @ Slovakia, will pave the way for exploring new areas of cooperation in the fields of economy, trade and reciprocal investment between the two countries, the Turkish Embassy told The Slovak Spectator.

The event will start with a meeting of the Turkish-Slovak Business Council, followed by a panel on business opportunities between Turkey and Slovakia within the context of Visegrad Four countries. There will also be a series of cultural activities. These will include exhibits reflecting various economic and cultural aspects of Turkey, a buffet dinner offering samples of Turkish cuisine, and musical performances.

Turkey @ Slovakia will be held at the Holiday Inn hotel in Bratislava. The Turkish Embassy is organising the event with Turkish and Slovak business associations, government bodies, and private-sector companies.
