UKTI EXPENDITURE ON TURKEY PROGRAMMES
Please note that the figures are indicative
and not necessarily exhaustive. Some activities covering multiple
markets do not appear as these were not exclusively devoted to
Turkey. The costs of the High Growth Market Advisor have similarly
not been included as the programme involves other support activities
as well as the immediate costs of the seconded advisor.
UKTI PROGRAMME SPEND
2007-08 figures are provisional
2008-09 are approximate commitments
TBBC was supported in-house by the market desk until 2005
and any support to the Council before 2005-6 is not available.
However, some non-UKTI funding was provided by Thames Water at
the time; the UK Chair of the Council was Bill Alexander (CEO
of Thames Water). An example of the support Thames provided is
that they employed a local representative as a TBBC co-ordinator
in Istanbul in 2003-0 MEA were awarded the secretariat role from
2005. There was some support for the Council in 2005-0(£3,452)
to organise a seminar on Turkey but more support was provided
in 2007-0as their programme has developed (£10,814).
