A video discussion

This video was filmed on 22 March 2017 in Bodrum, Turkey. The law and practice in Turkey change all the time. Please be aware that it may be out of date.

This interview features Borak Orkun, Managing Partner at Orkun & Orkun (info@orkunorkun.com) and John Howell, Editor & Founder of Guides.Global (editor@guides.global).

The advice and opinions contained in this video are those of the speakers and are not necessarily those of Guides.Global.
