One dimension of the knowledge produced by universities is to help resolving the problems faced by the real sector and mostly related to the practice. In this sense, faculties of economics and administrative sciences are important institutions that offer new approaches and methods based on scientific knowledge in support of the various functions of the real sector. This book is created around the outcomes of the “Cappadocia Economic Meetings-I: Financial Fragilities Experienced at the International Level, the Deficit Currency Positions of the Foreign Trade Companies in Turkey and Processes for Protection against these Issues” organised on November 27, 2018. It presents the history of how and why the currency risk occurred, and discusses how Turkish foreign trade companies can protect themselves against exchange rate risk in the short and long term. In this respect, the book suggests several measures and makes a number of policy recommendations, from financial strategies to structural adjustments.
The participants including sectoral representatives and researchers also discussed the need to strengthen university-industry cooperation. Accordingly, the book is suited not only to academic circles and relevant students, but also to representatives of the real sector.
After graduating from the Department of Public Administration of the Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences of Gazi University, Dündar completed his master’s studies in the Faculty of Political Sciences of Ankara University. He is currently continuing his doctorate studies in the same department and is working as a research assistant in the Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences of Cappadocia University, while also working as an editor and translator.
