"Turkey's gold export was 842.6 million dollars in 2004. The total volume of the sector is around 4.5 billion dollars. This corresponds to 2.3 percent of the GNP. When considered within its own dynamics, the gold sector is very precious to Turkey. What if this were evaluated taking into consideration the U.S. market? What would the picture look like?"

Golf’s Long Game in Turkey

By ADAM SCHUPAKOCT - New York Times- The Turkish Golf Federation president, Ahmet Agaoglu, likes to tell the story of the time Tiger Woods straddled two continents and struck golf’s first intercontinental shot from Asia to Europe. “To play a role in it was the greatest achievement of my life,” Agaoglu said. On Nov. 5, 2013, Woods stopped traffic on the Bosporus Bridge, which spans 5,118 feet and is 210 feet above the Bosporus. Well, at least half of it was closed as Woods stepped to a circular, platform AstroTurf tee. Cars and buses whizzed by in the three lanes on the opposite side of the bridge, renamed the July 15 Martyrs Bridge in 2016, into Europe as Woods, in his trademark Sunday red golf polo, blasted drives from Istanbul in western Asia into the southeastern corner of Europe on a windy afternoon.

German Tourist Arrivals in Turkey Seen Rising 15-20 Percent in 2018

ANTALYA, Turkey (Reuters) - Early reservations point to a 15-20 percent rise in the number of German tourists visiting Turkey next year, Michael Frenzel, president of the federal association of Germany’s tourism sector told Reuters.

Thomas Cook: British Holidaymakers Are Returning to Egypt and Turkey

Turkey and Egypt are attracting more British holiday bookings, as prices in destinations seen as safer continue to increase. Both countries have seen a slump in visitor numbers due to a series of terror attacks, together with the closure to UK airlines of the main Egyptian resort airport, Sharm el Sheikh. But Peter Fankhauser, Chief Executive of Thomas Cook, said demand had picked up “as customers look for quality and value”. He told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “Both destinations are wonderful countries, with great hotels, great beaches, nice people, and it’s really good value.



“People want to go back. We are not a security company; as long as we have the advice of the Foreign Office that we can fly to Egypt and Turkey, we offer a great product.”

Many holidaymakers have switched from the eastern Mediterranean to destinations perceived as “safe”, notably Spain.

Sales to Spain were unchanged, with “a very competitive trading environment” — due to the sheer number of aircraft seats from the UK to Spanish airports. Average selling prices for seat-only tickets are down 3 per cent, while holiday prices overall have risen by 7 per cent.

“Spanish hoteliers are taking advantage a bit of the increased demand, and prices went up because we have not enough beds for all the demand,” said Mr Fankhauser. He predicted “A 5 to 10 per cent price increase we’ll have for sure in Spain” for summer 2018.

Thomas Cook has faced criticism from some holidaymakers caught up in the extreme weather in the Caribbean and Florida earlier this month, in particular travellers who were in Cuba as Hurricane Irma approached and who say Thomas Cook was slow in responding.

But Mr Fankhauser said: “I am proud of how fast we acted in the wake of Irma to support our customers, and offer them alternative destinations for their winter sun.” (Simon Calder / independent.co.uk)
