Turkey has more freedom, human rights, and rule of law than does Egypt (where production is reportedly moving). I know, the Sisi regime hasn’t set a high bar, but it’s ridiculous to frame this as anything but a business decision.
Sure..a manufacturer from china, which is renowned for their perfect worker right regulations with zero corruption, pulling out of Turkey and start a place in Egypt, which is also a great place for democracy and worker rights, etc. /S
This narrow sight is killing me.
Authoritarian regime rife with corruption that can easily be bribed and bypass any regulations as needed with western protections -- perfect for any crony capitalist. The real amazement is that they were ever allowed to be part of NATO.
NATO is still relevant because its effectively a death pact. I don't want to be in a death pact with a leader who stages their own coups, and is actively commiting acts of aggression against other Western countries as well as still in an ongoing invasion of Cyprus.
