One of them is an exemplary project; Bizimköy Production Center for the Handicapped. I am proud of our chamber.

Our President Ayhan is an active and visionary person befitting the leading city of Türkiye's industry and the chamber of industry of that city. I work with him on the TOBB Board of Directors and IKV. We benefit from his knowledge and experience. I witnessed that he represented you in the best way in Ankara. At the level that TOBB has reached today, in its service capacity, he has expended great effort and contributions. He is also the director of TEPAV, Türkiye's largest think tank. Here, we are advising both the private and public sectors and drawing a road map.”

Hisarcıklıoğlu said, “As you know, during the pandemic, we worked with my Presidents to provide a lot of support for you. Of course, there is more work to be done, because the troubles are not over just by listening to them. As TOBB, we are following and voicing these as well.”
