Dersin Amaç ve İçeriği

Course Objectives: The aim of this course is to analyse how countries could optimize their resources in order to reach/maintain their sustainable economic growth. For this purpose; in accordance with the changing trends in the countries’ natural resources, energy, agriculture, and so on; and the impact of the resources on climate change; effects of the resources that need to be changed due to climate change on the import and export balances of the countries and how a foreign trade policy should be followed in this process; and the situation of Turkey will examine in this process.
