International Students Contribute to Our Economy
The founder of Nişantaşı University, Levent Uysal stated that they want to support the Turkish economy by bringing in international students to the country and said “They will be honorary publicity ambassadors of our country. They will establish business connections with Turkish business people when they get educated here and return to their countries. We are very happy to make such a contribution to the country's economy in the mid and long term,” he said.
The World Bank recently revised Turkey's growth rate and reported that it was emerging from a difficult economic period. According to the bank's report, growth was forecast to increase by 3 per cent and 4 per cent respectively for the next two years. On the other hand, the international credit rating agency Fitch Ratings also upgraded Turkey's credit rating from negative to stable. If there are no setbacks, similar steps are expected from other organisations.
Levent Uysal, founder of Nişantaşı University, who stated that the strong recovery in the Turkish economy was accepted by the whole world and it was understood from the statements made, the revisions of notes and growth data, said “Although credit agencies and other economic institutions did not want to, they were obliged to increase our country rating. In this difficult process, all sectors took on responsibility. Those who wanted our economy to be bad were frustrated with this rapid recovery process. We gave them the best answer by continuing our investments unabated.”
“The number of international students in our country, which was over 40 thousand 4 years ago, has reached 150 thousand today. However, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has announced a target number for 2023. Our goal in 2023 is to reach 250-300 thousand international students,” said Levent Uysal, and continued his words by saying “we as educators have taken and continue to take many steps to contribute to our country. International students will be honorary publicity ambassadors for our country. They will establish business contacts with Turkish business people when they are educated here and return to their countries. We are very happy to make such a contribution to the country's economy in the mid and long term.”
Uysal finished his remarks as follows:
"Breakthroughs in other sectors are also doing extremely well. We are more hopeful for the next term. As our exports and performance increase, resistance in the Turkish economy will return to its old days.Release date: 30.11.2019
