The impact of the Eurozone crisis on Turkey, Italy and the Mediterranean


The Eurozone crisis has impacted deeply upon Italy, southern Europe and the European Union as a whole. Surrounding regions have also not been immune to the crisis. The southern Mediterranean countries, whose economic problems contributed to the Arab spring, now struggle to recover in view of their dependence on Europe. Turkey instead, has  maintained high levels of growth, but beneath the surface, its interdependence with the EU also casts shadows over its economic future. What precisely has been the impact of the crisis on Italy, Turkey and the Mediterranean and what are the prospects for turning the interdependence between the three into a force for the recovery of the wider Europe space?



Amid the 9° Edition of the Italian-Turkish Forum, UniCredit- in collaboration with Yapikredi and NTCM, also organizes a Turkish Business Presentation for Italian SMEs with the aim to present new business opportunities offered by the Turkish market, thought a disclosure of its banking, financial and legal system.
