Nevertheless, the BPTF is obsolete on a number of important points due to the lack of coverage of services, direct light and public procurement; and has not contained anti-fraud provisions contained in EU trade agreements since 2001. Turkey first applied for membership of the European Economic Community (EEC) in July 1959, with the EEC established in 1958. The EEC responded by proposing the establishment of an association as an interim measure leading to full membership. This led to negotiations that culminated in the Ankara Agreement on 12 September 1963. [1] In regulatory areas, the obligation to reconcile legislation under the EC agreement has cooperated with the broader harmonization process in many areas under free trade agreements such as intellectual property (IP) and competition policy (including rules for state-owned enterprises). In these areas, the internalisation of the European acquis has had a greater impact on internal regulatory reform and Turkey`s alignment with modern practices than on the effects of EU free trade agreements with other partners. ROC differs in all EU agreements, which takes into account the particular circumstances. In the case of pan-euro-med-eligible agreements, including BPTF, 14 The ROC accumulation system has developed over time between the pan-European cumulative system (PECS) introduced in 1997 and the Pan-Euro Med Med (PEM) system introduced in 2005, which was formalized in its current structure in 201215. The BPTF was born in the context of Turkey`s desire to strengthen ties with Europe. In July 1959, Turkey applied for its association with the European Economic Community. A process was thus launched, which led to the signing of the Association Agreement (“Ankara Agreement”) on 12 September 1963. It is a legal entity with a common decision.- Profits are distributed according to an agreed distribution between the partners. The applicant must have an equal or dominant interest in the company, with a share of responsibility.

A partnership agreement is a key document that covers all “anything” agreements. The BPTF is the result of the transition phase.
