MUSIAD USA President attended to GPI Panel
On October 13, 2017 the Global Policy Institute convened a panel of experts to discuss the current state of US-Turkey relations and the possible way forward. The participants were: Mustafa Tuncer, President, MUSIAD USA; Jennifer Miel, Executive Director, U.S.-Turkey Business Council, US Chamber of Commerce; and Dr.Andrew Wyner, Dean, BAU International University. Paolo von Schirach, President of the Global Policy Institute moderated the event.
The panel discussion focused on the negative impact on business people, bilateral trade, exchange students and tourists of the recent decision on the part of the U.S. Embassy in Ankara and the U.S. Consulate in Istanbul to stop issuing non- immigrant visas to Turkish citizens who apply in Turkey. The Turkish Government reacted with a similar ban affecting U.S. citizens willing to travel to Turkey.
