For Turkey, simply supporting any entrepreneur native/immigrant will work to boost the economy :)


Turkey unfortunately is rather immigration-unfriendly. (See this article for example http://www.hurriyet.com.tr/ekonomi/11285630.asp?gid=254) I have heard many stories of educated spouses of Turks not being able to get work permits in Turkey.

I think your friend Aydin is absolutely correct though. For one, immigration creates diversity which in turn creates business value. In that respect Turkey does have very clear examples of this. The explosion of regional cuisine from the south-east for example (all the ocakbasi restaurants in Istanbul, including the rather successful Tikke, Köşebaşı etc.) is due to "immigration" from that region to Istanbul.
