To the other countries, Sweden’s image is of a prosperous country with a national culture that is firmly anchored in social development and support for human rights. It is often also viewed as an example to follow in terms of environmental policies. Not having participated in a single armed conflict in two centuries, Sweden has consistently based its relationships with other countries on international cooperation and multilateralism.
After Turkey, South Africa and Russia, Mazars is now devoting Nomad’s latest issue to Indonesia. In the heart of international events as the new chair of ASEAN and as a member of the G20, Indonesia comforts its position as a major regional and international player, namely with regards to environmental issues.
After exploring India, Egypt, China, Russia, Thailand and Brazil, Nomad is now devoting its latest issue to Turkey. Mazars has been in Istanbul for more than ten years and has since added locations in Ankara, Izmir and Bursa, resulting in a strong presence on the Turkish audit and advisory landscape.
A prosperous economic network is currently being established, financed by local investors and stimulated by the demand of the domestic market. Those, like Mazars, who took a gamble when they established themselves in Russia in the 1990s, are now reaping the rewards. In a country where interpersonal relations and confidence are of paramount importance, a long standing presence guarantees success.
Where Africa meets Asia, in the heart of the Middle East, is Egypt: the most populous country in the Arab world.
