Or, it is possible to see in the world, in our country and in our city, that he produced not a work but a permanent destruction with his works. In this respect, we want to make a stance and common sense prevail in the face of all this understanding. There is another beauty when common sense and Istanbul come together: Its depth is magnificent. It is possible to find tens of millions of partners, and to carry the contributions of tens of millions of people from different nationalities, beliefs and cultures, when they say, "I want to contribute to Istanbul," who have a desire to contribute, from the past to the present and in today's world. In other words, you can imagine what kind of results such a city, which is a donor, self-sacrifice, makes it possible for such a deep human resource to reveal itself, can create with a common mind.”

Therefore, I want you to perceive this process as a beginning, not a result, and that the process is always within you. Beyoğlu will protect its values, be fed and gain through tourism. At the same time, Beyoğlu will continue to be the heart of entertainment life. Of course, it will be a region that will be prepared for the future with the contribution of technology. Everyone living in Beyoğlu will have the opportunity to develop themselves with secure job opportunities. Beyoglu; will be the center of diversity, freedom and creativity. It will turn into an area where you can walk, cycle and do sports on the shores of the Golden Horn and the Bosphorus. We will embrace our neighborhoods together and they will produce together with our parks, gardens and orchards and contribute greatly to the creativity of the people of this city with their culture and art areas. In this Strategic Plan, Beyoğlu will become an earthquake resistant district, struggling with climate crisis, fighting and prepared for disasters.

Of course we had an unfortunate moment. We lost six of our people in the terrorist attack. We must fight against terrorism together. Terrorism is not only in Istanbul, Istiklal Street, but also in many countries of the world, in the heart of Europe, in America, Asia, the Far East, unfortunately in Africa, in every city, in the most important city, in the world's most important city. in the most important centers. Tragedies can happen. We must stand up against them and fight them all together. We know that the solution to terrorism, and the solution to evil, depends on the strength and size of the good standing in front of it. We, as the power of that goodness and that beauty and that good thought, take great pride and pleasure in walking in Beyoğlu, Istiklal every day. May Allah increase our strength.
