In the publication moderated by Yelena Lihomanova, Mayor Tunç Soyer said, “Pandemic showed us that we have to live in harmony with nature. We shall preserve nature and take it as our most valuable asset. We cannot be healthy if the nature is sick. Another important issue is hygiene. We shall prove countries and tourists that our city is safe and clean. Our efforts to improve tourism in gastronomy, touristic values, history and culture continue. However, with pandemic, our priority is to prove that our city is safe. In the following process NGOs, government, municipality and private sector shall work in unity. Solidarity became much more important.”
The meeting was attended by Bashkortostan Republic Vice President Aleksandr Sidyakin, İtalian Venoto city, Minerbe Mayor Andrea Girardi, Moscow University Urban Studies Director Sergey Kapkov.
