In other words, while we are bringing new investments to our city physically, we also make human investments. Just like we give vocational training to thousands of young people in our ESMEKs and turn them into qualified workforce ...

As in the past, Erzurum will once again become an attraction, education, culture, sports and arts center of this region and country. ”
