In his speech at the ceremony, General Manager Erkan pointed out the importance of the social cooperatives that are increasingly published in the world.
Tur In our country, especially in the fields of health and education, we have respected institutions that serve without a profit. The social cooperatives, which carry out their activities not for profit purposes but for the purpose of producing social benefits, draw attention with successful examples in recent years. The social cooperative model, which brings social benefit target together with an entrepreneurial spirit, is becoming increasingly popular, especially in European Union countries.
The social cooperative is a phrase that we begin to hear and use. However, the spirit of partnership, unity and solidarity that constitutes the essence of this model is not new to us but rather rooted. We are a nation that has been carrying the generations as a national character to be crowded, to share, to help each other and to wrap up his wound while we are consuming. The yeast community is necessary for the development and expansion of social cooperatives.
It is the right to explain this work together with our General Directorate and other public institutions and civil organizations. For this purpose, I would like to hope that this journey, which will introduce social cooperatives to the public within the framework of the Social Cooperative Promotion, Education, Development and Implementation Project of our General Directorate, will be completed successfully Genel.
