21.12.2019 / Çaycuma Zonguldak

Attending the opening of the Zonguldak Bülent Ecevit University Çaycuma Campus, Çaycuma Chamber of Commerce and Industry Social Service Building, the Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges of Turkey (TOBB) President M. Rifat Hisarcıklıoğlu stated that, with the completion of the Filyos Port, which is 90% completed, a completely different Çaycuma will be seen. After the opening, the district's entrepreneurs who provide employment and exports were also awarded.​

TOBB President M. Rifat Hisarcıklıoğlu thanked Governor Erdoğan Bektaş and Rector Prof. Dr. Mustafa Çufalı in his speech in Çaycuma. Stating that Çaycuma has begun to become an important investment center with its developing industry, Hisarciklıoğlu said, “There is an airport, there is an OIZ. 90% of Filyos Port is complete. When it's finished, it will be the third largest in Turkey with a handling capacity of 25 million tons. This will be the gateway not only to the Western Black Sea, but also to the sea of Central Anatolia. I would like to thank my Çaycuma CCI President, our board and council members, all my working brothers and sisters who work for the development of Çaycuma. President Zekai Kamitoğlu is also my colleague in Ankara. We work together at the TOBB Wishes Review Commission. He represents Çaycuma in Ankara in the best way. Çaycuma CCI is an accredited chamber. It offers a 5-star service to its member. I congratulate our Çaycuma CCI for this contemporary vision."

- Çaycuma education investments

Stating that they are also proud of the educational investments of Çaycuma CCI, TOBB President Hisarcıklıoğlu said: “When I came in 2013, we opened the science high school that our chamber had built. Today we are also inaugurating a new training facility of our Chamber. Our chamber also upholds our local values. You have applied for the registration of Çaycuma ox yogurt as a geographically marked product. My congratulations. I hope that with your efforts, Çaycuma will become richer.”

Stating that as TOBB and Chamber-Exchange community, they are working to support the business world, to facilitate their work, Hisarciklıoğlu said, “I'm just going to tell you about one of the things we do so I don't take too much of your time. Together with the Ministry of National Education, we began an endeavor that we have always dreamed of in regards to vocational education. Here we are working with our previous Rector Mahmut Özer. In every province, starting with a single vocational high school, Chamber-Exchange will be paired, having a say. Çaycuma can also pair with a school. Thanks to this new cooperation, I hope that we will raise vocational education to the highest level all over Turkey.”
