Abstract

Globalization makes foreign trade more important in the modern world. Continuity of foreign trade is one of the important indicators for national income and welfare. Trade activities may be differing for regions. Analyzing the Nomenclature of Units for Territorial Statistics (NUTS) Level 2 regions of Turkey according to differences between these regions is the subject of this study. In this study, NUTS Level 2 regions of Turkey are evaluated by TOPSIS, MOORA and VIKOR Methods with using 10 topics of foreign trade activities. There are 26 NUTS Level 2 regions in the Turkey. These are our alternatives. They are evaluated with 10 criteria which are the topics under the foreign trade activities. Results are given and regions are compared.

Keywords: MCDM, MOORA, NUTS Level 2 Regions, TOPSIS, VIKOR
