Since taking office, the Governor of Izmir, Mr. Erol Ayyıldız, who has emphasized the importance of the Kemeraltı and environs renovation area, visited TARKEM to monitor the ongoing projects in the region. During the visit, Mr. Ayyıldız listened to a presentation about the works and stated, "Kemeraltı means Izmir. Transforming this area into a tourism destination will be beneficial for the entire city."
Mr. Ayyıldız congratulated TARKEM about the award we won last week on the “Sustainable Business Award” against formidable opponents. He stated: "We have brought a well-deserved award to our city. This award is a validation that we are on the right path with our efforts for the historical Kemeraltı. I wholeheartedly congratulate TARKEM. Mr. Samim Sivri, the Chairman of the TARKEM Board of Directors, expressed his sentiments, saying, "We entered this process knowing that this task would take years. At the point we have reached today, with the support of İzmir Metropolitan Municipality, Izmir Governorate, Konak Municipality, as well as all professional chambers, we will work to make a region that belongs to İzmir and its people. We will accelerate our efforts to make the area an area that will work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, where young people enjoy being here, and where all cultural and historical values are revealed by preserving the nostalgic values of the old and the living. This visit gave us strength and excitement.”
