Turkey was divided into seven regions (Turkish: bölge) and 21 subregions (Turkish: bölüm), which were originally defined at the First Geography Congress in 1941.[1] Regions as defined in this context are merely for geographic, demographic and economic purposes and do not refer to an administrative division. Borders of these regions do not overlap with the borders of the administrative provinces.
