People considering expatriating could be tempted by the fast-growing economy in Turkey, powered largely by Istanbul.
According to the developers of the Elite Parla Palace, the economy has averaged GDP growth of 7.5 per cent a year over the past five years.
Employment opportunities are certainly one of the things to consider when relocating abroad and Istanbul's new Teknopark could deliver in this area.
The science and technology park, currently under development, is to be one of the most prestigious of its kind in Eastern Europe and the Middle East.
It is hoped that this will make the region more attractive to investors.
However, people moving to Turkey on a more permanent basis should think about organising a healthcare plan for expats before the big move.
Knowing that you are covered in the case of an accident is likely to eliminate some of the stresses and worries involved in a major relocation.
