Of course, we, as local administrators, do not remain indifferent, we have to show the will to do whatever we have to do.”
“WE SHOULD OWN THIS AREA IN OUR KAYSERİ AND DO WORKS”
Emphasizing that these events promoting Kayseri on an international scale should be seen beyond the fair, Büyükkılıç continued his words as follows:
“We are on the Silk Road, including the Wild Market. It is necessary to see what is more than a fair that introduces our city on an international scale, I thank you for using these promotional tools. As Kayseri, the Anatolian city, we made promotions as the capital of furniture. We should embrace this area in our Kayseri and work on it.”
President Büyükkılıç stated that the Airport New Terminal Building, which will be the exit gate of Kayseri with its modern architecture, continues at full speed and said, “I know and follow the expansion of our airport and the new terminal building there will come to life before the elections. I emphasize that it is important that the tender for our Logistics Village in Boğazköprü has been made and the work that our state will do through our railways. We are not on the edge of the sea, we are in the middle of Anatolia, but the creative and innovative approach of our people is enough to overcome all difficulties by Allah's leave. I emphasize that we will overcome it by working hand in hand with our chambers, with the cooperation of local administrations and our Governor's Office.”
“WE LOVE EACH OTHER WITH THE MAYOR”
In his speech, Governor Gökmen Çiçek stated that it has come to a period in which cities compete, not countries, and said, “For years, Kayseri taught Turkey how to become a locomotive city, how to develop, how to create unity and solidarity. I also attach great importance to this fair in this respect. Our fair is promoted under the name of Anadolu Furniture Fair in Kayseri on billboards all over Istanbul. Thank you very much for that. We are also looking forward to October 5-9. If a city will develop, if a city will grow, its rulers will love each other. We love each other with the mayor. If you love each other, you also love the city.”
