• Caribbean housing shortage solution from Turkey!

    Access to safe, affordable and efficient housing is crucial in times of climate change, natural disasters and migration flows. Residents of traditional areas on the mainland or islands also face challenges: scarce land, high construction costs and a growing expensive rental market.

    The Netherlands-Turkey Chamber of Commerce foundation (CCNT) is therefore honored to appoint Mr. Ryan Blanca, born in Suriname, as ‘ambassador’ for the Caribbean (i.e. including Guyana, Suriname and French Guyana). Due to the strong historical ties with Europe, there is a lot of economic activity with, among others, the Netherlands, which makes good accessibility possible for Turkish entrepreneurs.

  • ICT ‘nearshoring’ Turkey-Netherlands a great success!

    The need for affordable, good software and programmers is great in the Netherlands. ITR Connect, the ICT nearshoring initiative for the Dutch business community, which we mentioned shortly after their start-up in May this year (see previous message), has already proven to be a great success.

    “A diversity of clients have been served: sellers of sports products, employment agencies, energy-related companies, retail companies looking for a product assembler for their customers, financial service providers and R&D companies,” says founder and director Yaşar Yiğittürk. A turnover of at 150K is already expected this year.

    ITR Connect has a large pool of highly experienced and certified software developers in various programming languages. Project leaders in the Netherlands guide the customer in the development processes using Scrum, an Agile development method with short ‘sprints’ that yields results within 4 weeks. Market demand varies from complex financial systems and apps for mobile applications to state-of-the-art websites.

    Thanks to the efforts of (Turkish) Dutch project leaders and Turkish software developers, good software can be supplied that seamlessly meets the wishes of Dutch clients. This unique combination ensures that more and more Dutch companies that have their software developed in the Netherlands, India or Eastern Europe are starting to see the benefits of the nearshoring initiative of ITR Connect.
