On Thursday, March 1, 2012, the Washington Network Group convened a panel of experts for our WNG International Roundtable on Doing Business in Turkey. This seminar extended our series on the BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa). Our formal program was followed by a networking reception.
This special event was convened under the auspices of the WNG International Roundtable, which supports leaders in the international arena, including the private, public, and independent sectors.
