We have a lot of academician friends from Turkey and overseas; however, the most important part of this congress may be to gather our friends working in finance and economics field and others working in every field and in each practice together. We have a schedule where important and different issues are being discussed. We both have academicians working on finance and economics and professionals who are the valuable people in practice and finance media. In nearly all sessions, a different issue is being discussed. The agenda is hot, and we see daily economic and political changes are being discussed heavily in international levels and in Turkey in general. We see nearly all topics come to economy at the end when we look at global trends of 2017. I can tell it in comfort because I work internationally. Economy covers our whole life. Therefore, I have no doubt about the fact that this congress will handle all these topics and create a serious academic discussion medium. Thus, main theme of the congress is global, financial transformation and its effects on economy this year”.

Mehmet Altuntaş, the Director of Vocational Schools of Nişantaşı University, shared information about the congress and said that they organized effective and productive sessions in terms of discussing about to what extent a theory has been realized in practice by gathering active workers of the finance market. Mr. Altuntaş explained the congress was supported by the Central Bank and added, "The main theme of the congress has been effects of global, financial transformation on real economy. Trakya University hosted the event that lasted for 2 days in 6 sessions. There were participants from both Turkey and international universities in the event. We obtained nearly 180 abstracts. We delivered them to the scientific board and as a result, we organize our congress with 100 academic papers. The most important thing about the congress is the fact that it is supported by the Central Bank of Turkish Republic. We preferred Edirne to support regional development. We are going to keep on our congresses at a different university each year as Nişantaşı University. We hold a congress where not only academicians are present but also market sessions are available. When we look the general congresses held in Turkey, they are mostly considered as congresses with the participation of academicians at universities. However, we have moved ahead and added market sessions. We have brought active workers in finance market, and tried to organize effective and productive sessions at which to what extent a theory has been realized in practice. We believe this is going to benefit our participants.”
