Turkey has many major sectors such as services, construction, and industry sectors. However, services have witnessed a huge development in all sectors; health, education, transportation, and tourism, as Turkish government has promised to give it the priority in the attempt to improve the living standards in Turkish society.
The education sector has been developed dramatically in the last decade. The government has been putting billions of Turkish liras to build more innovative educational system. The number of schools and educational institutions has increased continuously in which there are over 200 universities with the most important languages such as English, French, and German, which run by the state and private sector.

Health system has witnessed major reforms during the period of 2000-2010 in which it meets all the international standards in the quality of healthcare. Under this healthcare system, all residents register with the Social Security Institution, which provides medical treatments free in SGK-contracted hospitals.
The annual payment for the health insurance varies depending on the medical treatments, which are covered; however, SGK, which is the social security institution usually covers most of the medical treatments which resident usually needs. Here, in Turkey, private healthcare represents a large part of whole health sector, so the hospitals can be both public and private; however, some private hospitals might provide higher quality medical services. One of the impressive examples of public private partnership in the field of heath is Istanbul İkitelli City Hospital Project, which is the third largest health investment project in Turkey initiated by the Ministry of Health. The project spreads over an area of 790 thousand m2 in Başakşehir in which it is expected to provide health services to 23600 patients per day with capacity of 2700 beds. One of the highest advantages of our projects in Başakşehir that the City Hospital Project is being built next to them, so our clients can ensure having an access to a very high-quality healthcare.
