For an economic boost, Turkey should improve its infrastructure in such areas as transportation, public services, and telecommunications, according to a top executive of Chinese telecommunication giant ZTE.
Turkey’s dynamic structure, young population, and well-educated workforce make the country a potential base for investment, Li Ming, ZTE’s Central and Eastern Europe executive president, told Anadolu Agency.
