ISTANBUL IN BRIEF
Istanbul, still geographically perfect!
Although thousands of years have passed, Istanbul still maintains its geographical importance. Today Istanbul is a huge metropolis connecting continents, cultures, religions and being home to eleven million people; and one of the greatest business and cultural center of the region…
Economy of Istanbul
As well as being a capital to three empires, Istanbul is one of the very few cities which is able to maintain its quality of being an economical center. Indeed, although not serving as capital to the new republic declared in 1923, it kept its economically central position and never lost this power to determine the fate of the country. The population of Istanbul, which was 1 million 78 thousand people in 1945, increased to 1 million and 533 thousand with the growth after 1950 and in the following periods, became 7 million 309 thousand in 1990 with an annual increase of 40-50 per thousand, and 9 million 199 thousand in 1997, and became a city with over 10 million people according to the census in 2000. If we briefly look at the economy and business life of the city, the share of Istanbul in the Turkey’s gross national product is 23 percent. Annual contribution of Istanbul to state budget is 40 percent, but in return the share it receives from the state expenditures is around 7-8 percent. The headquarters of all private banks and 21 percent of total bank branches in Turkey are located in Istanbul.
