Hisarcıklıoğlu stated that he took part in the management of many business organizations abroad and said, “They always asked me there. How did you get through the pandemic with little damage? We have survived with your selfless work.” Hisarcıklıoğlu pointed out that in addition to the rise in input prices such as fertilizer and feed in agriculture, drought can also turn into a very big problem. Pointing out that the working capital need of companies has also increased due to high inflation, the TOBB President said, “We also convey to the government that new loan and KGF surety loan packages are needed to support them. For example, in loan rates and limits, we were all experiencing great difficulties. First we met with our Central Bank, then with our public banks, at TOBB. Later, new regulations were introduced. Hopefully, we expect it to reflect positively on the loan interest rate.”

In his speech, Hisarcıklıoğlu also gave the good news that they will build a school in Hopa.
