Russia and Turkey often present an enigmatic face to those outside their borders. As an energy superpower, Russia has access to vast financial resources and yet grapples with the task of building its economic and physical infrastructure as well as developing new democratic processes and traditions. In 2010 and 2011, Turkey’s GDP grew at 9.2 percent and 8.5 percent, respectively, striving to leave behind a past that has seen serious economic challenges. During this program, you will have an opportunity to learn how Russia and Turkey are meeting their future and developing and managing their economies as you interact with business and government leaders.
Possible company visits might include (though subject to change):
General Motors, US Consulate, Wrigley Gum, St. Petersburg Committee for Economic Development, Istanbul Stock Exchange, Caterpillar, Corning
