The Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TIKA) was established in 1992 with the purpose of providing technical assistance for developing countries and establishing relations with them in areas of economy, trade, technology, culture, education and social development through implementation of projects and programs.

The Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency is engaged in various development cooperation activities in over 150 countries through its 62 Programme Coordination Offices located in 60 countries across 5 continents. Turkey shares her knowledge and experience through TİKA, with many countries from the Balkans to Africa, from the Middle East to Latin America.

In its activities on rendering technical assistance and implementing cooperation projects TIKA places emphasis on the country-specific national features, social and cultural peculiarities thus building its activities on experience of these countries.  Amongst projects of recipient countries a priority is given to projects in the area of human development and technical cooperation.  TIKA continues to provide social, in-kind and mainly technical assistance with a demand-driven approach. The TIKA’s technical assistance includes construction, training programs, equipment supply and delivery of expert services. Besides, TIKA also contributes to cooperation projects aimed at development of bilateral relations in the area of culture.
