Business Observations

 There may be some risks associated with the growing support of the HDP party. Erdogan is part of the AKP party
so the vote for parliamentary elections, which revealed a loss of support for the AKP, would mean a shift in
power in the next presidential race (Robins-Early, 2015).

 The Bribe Index for Turkey indicates there would be mild concerns for bribery, but the rating was last updated in

 The CPI of 45/100, updated in 2014, indicates a moderate chance for corruption in Turkey. Companies should be
aware and remain alert, but risks could be higher in other countries.

 The OECD Anti-Bribery Convention shows there is little support for combatting corruption. As a business, do not
expect much government support. The Control of Corruption rating supports this further by highlighting mild

 Establishing corporate policies and addressing issues of corruption within the organization is a first step. This
sets the example for all employees to follow. It is also important for organizations to be aware that bribery could
be a moderate issue and should be a consideration regarding competition.
