Luis Alberto Amoros Nunez, the Cuban Ambassador in Ankara, paid a courtesy visit to Izmir Metropolitan Municipality.
The Ambassador Amoros Nunez noted that this is his first year in Turkey but he visited Izmir three times, and he added that the city is very beautiful and the people of Izmir are as friendly as the Cubans.
The Ambassador announced that Izmir is full of business opportunities and they want to do business here. “In particular, you are exceptionally successful in tourism, port management and agriculture” said the Ambassador Amoros Nunez and added: “I believe that we can combine our powers. According to our new constitution enacted on December 22, the government will provide more support to the foreign investments. We are very interested in cooperating with Izmir. I think that Turkey offers great opportunities. We have huge problems when it comes to agriculture. We do not have an industry capable of processing the food. However, Izmir is very successful in these areas.”
Izmir Metropolitan Mayor Aziz Kocaoğlu noted that the visiting Ambassador might consult the Aegean Chamber of Industry, Izmir Chamber of Commerce, Izmir Commodity Exchange and Aegean Exporter’s Union and take key steps in this path. The Mayor Kocaoğlu underlined that it is possible to find a partner from any sector in Izmir and added: “This is the 2nd largest city of Turkey in economic aspect. You made the right choice by coming to Izmir”.
