The Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TIKA)


The Turkish International Cooperation and Development Administration (TIKA) under the Office of Prime Minister of Turkey was established in 1992 after collapse of the Soviet Union and the Eastern European Socialist Alliance 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 by TIKA.

A range of the TIKA’s project activities cover such Eurasian countries as the Kyrgyz Republic, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan and Mongolia in Central Asia; Russia, Ukraine and Moldova in the Black Sea region;  Romania, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Kosovo in the Balkans; and Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus in the Mediterranean.

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. Programs and projects implemented by the TIKA Administration may be grouped by two categories: technical assistance and cooperation. TIKA continues to provide social, financial and mainly technical assistance. The TIKA’s technical assistance includes training programs, equipment supply and delivery of expert services. Besides, TIKA continues to implement cooperation projects aimed at development of bilateral relations in the area of culture.
