McCurdy also participated in meetings and had discussions about challenges Turkish guest workers face in Europe and how Turkish entrepreneurship has contributed to Germany’s economic growth. In Berlin, he met with Ozcan Mutlu, a member of the Green Party and former parliamentarian. Their discussions also focused on current developments in Germany and the United States, the importance of Turkish people to participate in the political arena in their adopted countries, and Turkish success stories in the German and American political systems. McCurdy also encouraged the Turkish community in Germany to join Turkish Australians and Canadians by sending a delegate to TCA’s 2020 Annual Turkish American Youth Leadership Congress.
