İstanbul, the capital of business and finance in Türkiye, has been at the intersection of the most important trade routes throughout history. It is the only metropolis in the world that combines the historical heritage and cultural elements of the East and the West across two continents.

İstanbul, with a desirable time zone where major world markets can be followed during the same day and business can be completed in a very wide geography, offers access to a market size of 1.6 billion and an economy of 30 trillion dollars within a 4-hour flight distance.

The city is one of the most important flight centers, with an annual number of international passengers exceeding 60 million and a passenger capacity of 225 million, is poised to become the new meeting point of world finance.
