Taking our country and city into the future, bringing it to the level of contemporary civilizations is our biggest goal. There is no doubt that the power that we need runs in the noble blood of our veins. I would like to express my respects and gratitude to our esteemed industrialists who work day and night to produce and develop his country and the founder of our republic, Gazi Mustafa Kemal Atatürk.”
