Native American Tribes Seek Trade Ties with Turkey (Nov 11, 2010)

ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Native American tribal leaders and businessmen are seeking trade ties with Turkish companies by offering them tax incentives in their territories in the United States.

Turkish Coalition of America president Lincoln McCurdy said Thursday the Native American tribes belong to sovereign nations that can strike their own trade deals and offer special tax incentives. The coalition organized the trip.

The delegation, representing 17 tribes from at least 10 U.S. states, has been welcomed by the Turkish government, which wants to bolster trade ties with the United States.

Chairman John Berrey of the Quapaw Tribe in Oklahoma says it's a new day for opportunities for Turkey and for Native Americans. Berrey says Native Americans can provide Turkish companies a foothold in the United States.
