International Trade and Business is a rapidly developing multidisciplinary field of research in the present Global Age. Through the lenses of economics and management science, our field aims to understand and analyze the concept of economic globalization, the increase in complex relations among countries through international trade and capital movements happening in the last four decades. Technological development is the driving force behind economic globalization. On the one hand new financial techniques and instruments create a global banking and financial system. On the other, novel forms of production and business organization lead to a more integrated world economy. So much so that a small change in the interest rate in the United States due to domestic policies can affect global financial markets. Similarly, a tax imposed by the U.S. on a commodity imported from another country (such as China) can have impacts on many other countries (such as European or South East Asian Countries) due to complex international connections.
Globalization creates an opportunity for Turkey, a developing country, to become a significant player in this increasingly integrated economy. The main factor for Turkey’s success in this era of globalization will be the development of a well-trained work force. A robust human capital will enable Turkey to determine its long- and short-term goals correctly, and continuously renew itself concerning changing conditions.
