During the visit, Salih Zeki Murzioğlu-Chairman of Samsun TSO stated that Samsun has a fair culture from the past and said, “As we all know, Samsun hosted the first national fair of Turkey in 1963 with the decision of the Council of Ministers.  Although the concept of this fair is different from today's, it has added vitality to the cultural and social environment of the region and made Samsun the junction point of the region. However, in the 80s, it, unfortunately, lost its old dynamism and was closed because of the conditions of the day. The absence of a fair was an important issue in the region and bringing a new fair to Samsun was on the agenda for many years. Murzioğlu took the initiative to bring a fair to the city and with the consortium that they established with institutions that support development, they brought a modular fair center with a highly prestigious and expandable concept for Samsun.
Demands from The Business World

Salih Zeki Murzioğlu- Chairman of Samsun CCI together with Cengiz Günay- Chairman of Tekirdağ TSO realized a congratulatory visit to Hasan Basri Kurt, who was assigned as the Chairman of KOSGEB. Salih Zeki Murzioğlu- Chairman of Samsun Chamber of Commerce and Industry (STSO), Cengiz Günay- Chairman of Tekirdağ Chamber of Commerce and Industry (TTSO) visited Hasan Basri Kurt, who was assigned as Chairman of Small and Medium Enterprises Development and Support Administration (KOSGEB).  Murzioğlu and Günay wished Kurt success in his new assignment during the visit, which took place in a very friendly atmosphere. During the visit, projects, fairs and sectors that will strengthen the country's economy were discussed on. Murzioğlu shared the demands with Hasan Basri Kurt on the expectations from the business world and said, “With the changes made in January in the Business Development Support Program, an arrangement was made that businesses could not benefit from the second support program because of the supports in the first support program. In this process, where we need support more than ever, it is requested that the new arrangement should be reinstated. Because with this arrangement, the companies that will participate in the fairs will be able to get support for participation for only one fair. However, this will be a major obstacle for SMEs to reach different markets. KOSGEB supports have vital importance for the exhibition sector, which has come to the point of closure completely during the pandemic period. Therefore, the amount of support should be increased if possible. In addition, our businesses operating in the education sector suffered great losses during this period. We expect the education sector to be included in the scope of KOSGEB supports. We also expect the services sector to be included in the micro-enterprise quick support program". Hasan Basri Kurt expressed his satisfaction with the visit and stated that the demands of the business world are important for them and that they will evaluate their demands.
