ŞAHİN: I THANK MUSIAD FOR THEIR SOLID POSITION IN THE JOURNEY STARTED WITH THE "HIGH TECHNOLOGY VISION"

President Fatma Şahin, in her speech, said that Gaziantep is a city that transforms the Silk Road into a path of development and brotherhood, and embodies the spirit of unity.

Drawing attention to the vision, will and belief of MUSIAD, Şahin said:

“A century ago, our ancestors fought for the flag with the crescent and star to fly. Resisting hunger, the city became a gastronomic center a century later. We are the 7th city in the world in competitiveness. I would like to thank MUSIAD for their solid stance in the journey they started with the 'High Technology Vision'. Since 2002, their stance behind the national will was very important in every event that opposed the will of the people. It is very valuable that the local national civil society follows him with the leadership and courage of our President."

WE ARE BEHIND THESE WORKS UNTIL THE END

Mayor Şahin, referring to the fact that development and democracy starts locally, said, “All our municipalities are here with all their strength under the coordination of our governor. Gaziantep Model is exactly this. Our economic development will be strengthened. We will continue this journey with the instruction given to us by our civilization. We stand behind this work until the end.” he said.

WE ARE THE FIRST CITY TO ACT TO PROTECT THE CITY'S AIR, WATER AND SOIL

Referring to the prominent features of the city, Fatma Şahin concluded her words as follows:

“We are a city at the forefront of infrastructure and transportation. We participated in the OECD Champion Cities Initiative. We see every human being as a first class citizen. We approach issues with participation and inclusiveness. We have also been declared a Green City by the EBRD. 'How will we make the industry a green industry?' we move on to higher purification. We got permission to bring water to the organization from the Euphrates. Water will come from an altitude of 400, and we will provide the energy to be used to raise it to 800 altitude from the sun. We became the first city to take action to protect the city's air, water and soil. We never get hung up on periodic troubles. There is a green power economy. There is a MUSIAD that sees these works. Thank you very much for this.”
