Spatial preferences of foreign industrial capital in Aegean Region
Since from the beginning of the study, the main focus is on the flow of financial capital and increasing dominance of manufacturing sector activities in metropolitan areas, regions and space transformations. In this study; Turkey and Aegean Region are analyzed in terms of both economical dynamics and socio-cultural dynamics in the context of new trends in globalization. The impacts of new trends and dynamics of globalization have been experienced in urban, regions and metropolitan areas since the 1980s. The increasing competition between regions at national and global levels has brought about new development dynamics which have taken place at different planning scales. Therefore, analyzing these new tendencies is of great importance in identifying the influences coming from a global level. Whereas, the analysis of Turkey and Aegean Region enables us to draw conclusions upon differences resulting from the planning and economic dynamics; and, investigating the regional transformations of Aegean Region, makes possible to evaluate variances resulted from the region planning dynamics.
