A meeting was held with all of our tradesmen through this association. Our aim here was to move to a new place in the same way that they can continue their lives together with all the occupational groups working in them, apart from the industrial property owners. At the end of the negotiations, an agreement was reached and a pre-protocol was signed. With that protocol, both the right holders and the payment terms were determined with the following works. For payment, our tradesmen were offered a maturity of 36 to 120 months. Thus, our tradesmen, who suffered from Eski Sanayi and Karatay Sanayi as tenants, had the opportunity to own a workplace under favorable conditions. 2 thousand 856 people out of 2 thousand 653 people made a preliminary application. Only 300 of them will be property owners, all remaining will be tenants, first time business owners. I definitely want to emphasize this. "

We did this as a sacrifice for both our city and our shopkeepers. Just as we sacrificed for the establishment of ASELSAN Konya and the fact that it is a Technology Industrial Zone. Because one of the most important duties of Konya Metropolitan Municipality is to contribute to the development of this city and to solve the problems of this city. TOKI will make an investment of over 1 billion liras here within 2 years. " used the expressions.
ONE OF THE LARGEST INDUSTRY TRANSFORMATION PROJECTS

I would like to thank our industrialists and tradesmen here. We started the business with 2 thousand 850 and we have achieved 2 percent success by moving 550 thousand 90 people. We did not experience any resentment, any discussion, no problem in the process. I would like to thank the industrialist from Konya and the tradesmen from Konya on behalf of all of Konya. We completed this process with the courage we received from them. When the process is completed, we will carry out a demolition on an area of 800 thousand square meters and make a project worthy of Konya. Latter; Konya will have gained a new industry befitting itself. The new industry is about 2 and a half times the size of the old one; There are walking paths, bicycle paths, parking areas, educational institution areas. The construction cost of the entire 1 million square meter area related to the roads is carried out by TOKI. None of the fees related to this were reflected on our tradesmen. In other words, the tradesman only pays the land price and construction cost of the closed area built for him. All infrastructure expenses will be covered by TOKI free of charge. "

During the coronavirus period, our Minister of Environment and Urbanization has made great efforts in the realization of such a large project. I thank them on behalf of all people of Konya. And a thank you to our TOKI President, Mr. Ömer Bulut. It is a very costly job for TOKI, but it is done. We are making Konya's dreams come true hand in hand. Mevlana Bazaar is demolished, a new market is being built. Demolition procedures were initiated in the Golden Bazaar. Conversion is being made regarding the old Industry. These were the agendas of Konya for 40 years. Alhamdulillah it was our duty to solve it. No matter how much we pray, we cannot be thankful. " he spoke.
