Bridging Europe and Asia, Turkey is celebrated as the seat of the Byzantine and Ottoman Empires. Turkey became a republic in the aftermath of World War I, under the leadership of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, who espoused the principles of secularism and nationalism. Significant changes to Turkey’s Government came into effect in 2018, when the nation adopted a presidential system separating the executive from the legislature. This followed an attempted coup in July 2016, and growing tensions with both the European Union and the United States. According to the World Bank’s June 2020 Global Economic Prospects Report, Turkey’s economy is estimated to have grown moderately in 2019 and is expected to grow by five per cent in 2021 after a contraction in 2020.
