Get to know me a little more...

  • During my business life, social life and my presidency of Mersin Chamber of Commerce and Industry, I have been in close cooperation and dialogue with the entire business world of Mersin, large and small, as well as many public institutions and non-governmental organizations; We realized many projects together.

  • I carried out successful work in coordination with the business world, municipalities, public institutions and non-governmental organizations during the pandemic process and the Kahramanmaraş earthquake.

  • In both periods, I produced solutions quickly and effectively, especially regarding the needs of the business world, and contributed to solving the problems.

  • In addition to the development of trade and industrial sectors, I made great efforts towards the unity of the city of Mersin, the elimination of segregation and the integration of Mersin people... I believe I was successful in this regard; at least Many people living in Mersin adopted this idea.

  • I have done drinking water and irrigation facilities works in many regions of Turkey, almost everywhere in Mersin, from Tarsus to Anamur, from Mut to Çamlıyayla.

  • As a Mersin resident who knows every corner of Mersin very well, who knows clearly the needs of the city's business world, its social and cultural structure, what kind of Mersin the people want to live in, and who is well known in every part of the city, in every region. I wish to serve the Republic of Turkey and the Republic of Mersin with all my knowledge and experience. .

  • We have become the voice of Mersin by voicing issues related to Mersin in the national media and national press many times. In addition, we managed to become the president of the chamber, which has been repeatedly consulted and evaluated on important issues such as Turkey's economy, industry and logistics.

  • My biggest goal is to ensure that the city of Mersin is planned as a whole with all its districts and that it is managed in a peaceful and coordinated manner with all its institutions..
