01.03.2015 / Edirne

TOBB President M. Rifat Hisarcıklıoğlu, as a part of his Edirne itinerary, attended the opening of the Thrace University Dentistry Faculty and the foundation laying ceremony for the TOBB Faculty of Religion. Hisarcıklıoğlu said, “Every investment has its risks. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. You never lose when you invest in people.”​

Stating that they are continually contributing to Edirne as TOBB, Hisarcıklıoğlu underlined the fact that the most precious investment is that which is made in people. Hisarcıklıoğlu said, “Every investment has its risks. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. You never lose when you invest in people. The country benefits, the city benefits, the individuals benefit. The factor which determines our country’s status globally is how our citizens are educated. Today, the most precious capital is not gold, gas or oil; it is educated people. As TOBB, this is the mentality which guides us. We invest to the education of every province to fit the needs of each. We must not be content with only increasing the technical or empirical capacity of our youth; we must also imbue them with history, culture and spiritual values.”
