Thierry Senechal presented the findings of the World Bank study on financing facilities in Turkey. About 100 stakeholders gathered at the Movenpick Hotel to discuss constraints and perspectives for the development of the financial markets in Turkey, with a particular focus on access to short-term trade financing for SMEs. The presentation also focused on trade finance constraints in Turkey. For this assessment, the team visited Turkey and held meetings with a number of commercial banks, financial institutions, the national export credit agency Turk EximBank, factoring firms, trade organizations, and a group SMEs hosted by the Turkish Association of Exporters (TIM).
