On January 1, 2010, the new representative office of the Free State of Bavaria was opened in Turkey. The then 21st Bavarian representative office was officially opened in March 2010 by Bavarian State Minister Zeil with the aim of further promoting the already intensive bilateral relations. The Bavarian model of the representative network abroad has proven to be a very successful instrument for promoting foreign trade. However, the developments of recent years have led to a "slide in political relations" between Germany and Turkey. The list of issues critical to both sides is long.


In this International Business Dialogue we therefore want to reflect on the negative developments of the years in terms of their impact on economic relations between Bavaria and Turkey and the opportunities and risks for the future, especially after Turkey's early parliamentary and presidential elections on 24 June 2018.



Location of the event:


Bavarian Parliament (Maximilianeum), Hall 2
