Challenges For U.S. Companies – “There are a few areas that we certainly talk to the government about. U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross was really open about them in his September visit as well.

Pricing structures, restrictions on internet access, import ban on refurbished parts and restrictions on exports of building materials from the U.S. to Turkey and taxing and regulations on technology industries are other areas of concern.
