All Development and Entrepreneurial Business People Association (TÜMKİAD), which has been carrying out exemplary work to ensure economic development and cooperation in the business world since 2017, has increased its target with the Izmir Provincial Directorate, which has rapidly completed its structuring.
Ahmet Kirazdiken, who served as TUMKİAD Izmir Provincial President as a young industrialist and businessman, said that the association, which has reached 42 branches in Izmir and throughout the country, will provide significant economic gains for the city and the Aegean Region.
Providing information about the activities of the association, Kirazdiken said, “TÜMKİAD was founded in 2017 by businessman Nihat Tanrıkulu. Our association is a private non-governmental organization whose foundations were laid with a sapling planted in the 81th Regiment in Çanakkale, where soil brought from 57 provinces was mixed. TUMKİAD, unlike many associations and NGOs today, is an institution that does not derive its power from any political opinion or formation. As Turkish business people, we work for the development of our country, respectful of all opinions. Our aim is to be a stakeholder of commercial and economic development in line with the cooperation we have achieved under the roof of the association. "We will undertake impactful work with the strong potential and synergy of our members from different sectors in order to create new opportunities by developing commercial collaborations across Turkey," he said.
WE WILL BE THE VOICE OF BUSINESS PEOPLE
Stating that they took action to overcome sectoral problems and make the voice of business people heard, Ahmet Kirazdiken continued his words as follows: “We also take an active role in professional institutions such as Chambers of Commerce and Chambers of Tradesmen and Craftsmen, where business people are represented at a high level. As stakeholders of the sector, we know well the problems experienced. We are in contact with the most competent authorities to resolve these issues. Solving the problems in business life is not actually very difficult, and for this reason, we submit our own solution suggestions to the relevant authorities through the reports we prepare.”
WE WILL REVEAL THE TRUE POTENTIAL OF IZMIR
Pointing out that Izmir is a brand city with different features and qualities, just like TUMKİAD, Ahmet Kirazdiken said, “We set out to reveal the true potential of the city, pave the way for commercial collaborations, and solve the sectoral problems. For this purpose, we evaluate people by taking their qualifications and contribution into consideration, regardless of their economic power. BayraklıWe will open our Provincial Headquarters in Istanbul in a short time. We continue to grow stronger with our board of directors of 12 people and our new members. Fortunately, there are many female business people both on our board of directors and among our members. We are a young staff between the ages of 25 and 45. "We believe in the future of our country," he said.
PARTICIPANT STRUCTURE THAT EMBRACES ALL SECTORS
Noting that they have a wide membership profile consisting of representatives from different sectors, Ahmet Kirazdiken said: “As TÜMKİAD, we will keep the pulse of different sectors by creating 81 separate commercial committees within the association for the business world in Izmir. Exporters, industrialists and those in the service sector, in short, almost every sector has problems. We will seek solutions to these problems together. These need to be explained correctly and conveyed to the authorities. We plan to open a representative office in all districts of Izmir by the end of 2024. As Izmir Provincial Directorate, we started working to develop commercial activities and collaborations in different districts of our city. As TÜMKİAD İzmir Provincial Directorate, we aim to complete our structuring with our new branches to be established in other provinces in the Aegean Region.”
