Amino joins UK Government trade mission to Turkey to target new opportunities

26 Apr 2012

Amino Communications, leaders in IPTV/OTT solutions, is this week joining a UK Government-backed trade mission to Turkey - one of the fastest growing economies in Europe.

Company CEO Donald McGarva will join around 30 UK mid-sized businesses on a two day intensive visit to Turkey, where they will meet key figures from the Turkish Government and business community.

He said: "Turkey is developing rapidly with network operators and service providers capitalising on regulatory change by deploying new services. With analysts forecasting growth in IPTV services of 70 per cent plus over the next five years it's an ideal opportunity for Amino to engage in high level discussions to scope out the opportunity."

The mission brings together the Department for Business, UK Trade and Investment and the CBI and their joint focus on helping to improve the performance of mid-sized businesses and will be led by Trade and Investment Minister, Lord Green, John Cridland, Director-General of the CBI and Nick Baird, CEO of UKTI.

Trade and Investment Minister, Lord Green, said: "This is an exciting mission, the first of its kind, that brings together the opportunity offered by Turkey, one of the fastest growing economies in the world, and the export potential of the UK´s mid-sized firms.

"The Government has set a clear target to get another 100,000 UK firms exporting as a key part of driving economic recovery. Direct engagement with key figures from the government and business community will help break down barriers and foster understanding that will lay strong foundations for future trade and investment."
