Final countdown for Turkish Silicon Valley

Hurriyet – Efforts have hastened for the construction of the Turkish Silicon Valley Project, which was initially proposed to the Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan in 2006 by Bill Gates, founder of Microsoft. For a long time, many governmental and non-governmental organizations have been carrying out studies for the construction of a technology hub, similar to that of Silicon Valley in the US and a substantial part of these studies has been completed. TechnoBee has won the tender held for choosing the company that will conduct the feasibility studies for the Turkish Silicon Valley Project. The final resolution has been reached on the attributes of suitable land, the most important criterion, whereas TechnoBee still continues with its efforts to determine the two provinces of top priority.
