These video stock shots on Turkey cover four topics: a general presentation of Turkey; key reforms on the path to the EU; the EU and Turkey working together; and what Turkey can bring to the EU.
They feature new images of the political and economic capitals Ankara and Istanbul, the main political institutions of the country, and images of the main historical city Gaziantep.
They reflect the key reform areas that mark Turkey's relations to the European Union, such as the judiciary, competition, education and media freedom.
The EU's support to Turkish efforts towards adopting EU standards is illustrated through concrete projects in the following areas: heritage preservation, education, infrastructure projects, etc.
Turkey has a lot to bring to the EU in the field of alliance of civilisations from early archaeological and historical sites all the way to cultural and religious heritage. Turkey is also putting efforts into promoting culture and art, engaging in stock exchange and investing into sustainable energy production.
