Hello, VERY surprising!!!

When I saw all these projects (and also those on the Istanbul thread in this forum) I got very astounded, this looks like a modern consumer society and NOT a place inhabited by a mass of paupers dreaming of emigration!
What is the economic base of all this buiding activity? Real economic development or a debt and real estate bubble like in Spain?
Are there any well-known Turkish industrial brands which are exported? Here in Holland one can find Turkish food products but mainly in Turkish-owned grocery stores, not in mainstream supermarkets, and in other types of stores it is next to impossible to find (visible) Turkish products, while imports from other emerging markets (China and Korea mainly and sometimes also Viet-nam) are common.
Also, a Turkish friend told me that an invalid gets the equivalent of € 700 in benefits, unqualified workers ca. € 1000 as salary, office workers € 1500, doctors € 3000 and more. is that true? If yes, it looks as if Turkish workers are better off than Dutch ones as the salaries are similar to ours and price levels seem to be much lower than here, he told me that here you need € 60 to buy one week's food shopping and in Turkey one can buy two week's shopping for the equivalent of € 12. Are these figures realistic or not? If it is true, this can explain all these shopping centres and new buildings, like in China where real development tore out hundreds of millions out of poverty and made possible the emergence of hundreds of new cities and a huge middle-class comsumer market.
I hope to get some information about these themes!

BTW: I found on Google Maps these images, these places with low houses and irregular streets, I suppose these are poor and slum-like neighbourhoods?
Or am I wrong? Are there any improvement or clearance plans for poor parts of town?

Turkey's economic level is not comparable to Western European countries but it is way better than the average western European's perception. I can understand the perception in western Europe based on the uneducated Turkish immigrants that once immigrated there.

Let's try to answer your questions step by step.

Here is the minimum wage in Europe. As you can see it is higher than in most of the eastern EU members.


Here is a map of monthly average wage. Again it is better than in many eastern members.


Regarding salaries, you can check here the initial salaries of government workers. It's in Turkish lira but if you divide exactly by 2 you'll have it in USD.

According to the list a police officer is earning at the beginning of his career 1500 USD, a doctor 2100 USD, teacher around 1400 USD, a lawyer 2100 USD. Depending on the job you earn more or less as you can see on the list, I just gave you some typical jobs.



Quote:

There are some but not sure if you know them. Turkey mainly exports machinery, vehicles and textiles.

You might have heard of BEKO. They produce white goods. Sponsor of German Basketball league


Or Temsa. You see Temsa buses all over Europe. This one from UK.


Silkworm, a Turkish tram is being tested in Germany now. I think Duisburg was interested in it.



LTB Jeans, Mavi Jeans are also quite common nowadays.





Military equipment is also a good seller. For instance Dutch Royal Army purchased some Turkish made Aselsan anti-aircraft system.

http://www.militaryphotos.net/forums...therlands-Army

I don't want to write much since it is off topic but Turkey has a serious industry. It is meanwhile building its own national tanks, helicopters, stealth ships, high-speed trains. After China it is world's second biggest constructor. Those supertalls in Moscow are mainly built by Turkish companies or others in Dubai. If you are deeply interested come to the Turkish forum, I'll tell you more you'll wonder.

Thank you very much!



Thanks for having explained all that, it looks as if Turkey will reach in the forseeable future the level of Southern Europe.
What is the price level in Turkey compared with Western Europe?
