Türkiye’s Future Role in the Energy Security of Central and Eastern Europe

Türkiye’s role in Europe’s energy supply has become even more important following the recent energy supply shortages. Power supplies are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive, therefore countries like Hungary, and other NATO Allies exposed to the energy crisis must carefully observe alternatives such as the Türkish stream.

On Wednesday, we had a great discussion with 🇹🇷 Prof. Mitat ÇELİKPALA (Dean of Kadir Has University) and 🇭🇺 Mr. Máté LITKEI (Director of Climate Policy Institute) about Türkiye’s future role in the European energy security and the geoeconomical-geopolitical importance of the Turkish Stream.

The panel talk was organized in the collaboration with YATA Türkiye and Hungary with the aim of strengthening the cooperation between YATA International chapters – it was not the first, and definitely not the last one!

🎙 Speakers:

🇹🇷 Mr. Prof. Dr. Mitat Çelikpala, Dean of Faculty of Economics, Administrative and Social Sciences at Kadir Has University, Istanbul

🇭🇺 Mr. Máté Litkei, Director at Climate Policy Institute
