The Right Industrialists' and Businessmen's Association (HAKSIAD) commenced its highly-anticipated 4th Businessmen's Meeting in the picturesque district of Kızılcahamam, Ankara.
Running from September 21 to September 24, this event has drawn industrialists, entrepreneurs, businessmen, and investors from various corners of Türkiye and the world.
The "2023 HAKSIAD 4th Businessmen Meeting" serves as a platform for professionals operating in diverse sectors to forge new business connections and fortify their positions in their respective industries. One highlight of the gathering was the opportunity for sector representatives to showcase their products through exhibition stands set up at the venue.
The event, hosted by Cafer Ökmen, commenced with the recitation of the Holy Quran by Ahmet Pak. Following this, Fikri Karavil, President of HAKSIAD, delivered a noteworthy address.
Karavil expressed the association's gratitude for the traditional member sector meetings, noting: "As HAKSIAD, we are excited to share the 'Businessmen Meeting' event, which we organize in the first quarter of each year, with you this year. We had to postpone our member meeting program due to the earthquakes of February 6, which shook our country deeply in every aspect."
In light of recent natural disasters, Karavil extended condolences and wished for a speedy recovery, emphasizing the importance of values such as innovation, know-how, education, and ethics in economic development.
Karavil went on to discuss the global economic landscape, pointing out the disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine War, which underscored the need to reduce external economic dependencies and bolster domestic production. He stated that HAKSIAD is actively working to address these challenges and ensure Turkey's economic sustainability through various projects and initiatives.
The President of HAKSIAD also voiced concern over recent attacks against Arab and Muslim businessmen and called for government intervention in these matters.
Highlighting Türkiye's strategic significance in the world, Karavil emphasized the association's commitment to supporting its members and volunteers in times of economic fluctuations and crises.
Karavil further underscored HAKSIAD's mission to contribute to Turkey's economic development by utilizing the country's diverse opportunities in fields like agriculture, industry, technology, and tourism. He stressed that the association's values, including justice, honesty, solidarity, and social responsibility, play a central role in their approach to business.
Finally, Karavil conveyed HAKSIAD's vision of economic success as a means to achieve social welfare and individual happiness, pledging to continue promoting ethical and fair practices in the business world.
The program continued with a presentation on "Foreign Trade Export Import" by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Gökhan Kırbaç, along with seminars by industry experts.
