The conversation with His Excellency Hami Aksoy was very meaningful and represented the support in the development of successful bilateral relations between our two countries, said Niš City Mayor Dragana Sotirovski. I believe that many will be happy with the news about the establishing regular direct flights between Niš and Istanbul. I was pleasantly surprised by the initiative and interest of the Republic of Turkey to open its consular office in Niš, the Mayor pointed out. The consular office would be at the service to Turkish citizens traveling through Serbia and would work on the development of economic cooperation and the arrival of new investors in Niš and this part of Serbia, the Mayor said.
Noting that Turkish investors have significant investments in this part of Serbia, His Excellency said that this was not enough and that he would work to increase the Turkish investments. His Excellency expressed the readiness of his country to work on the renewal of the monumental heritage from the period of the Ottoman Empire. Assistant Mayor for International Cooperation Jovana Mitic, the representatives of the Office for Local Economic Development and representatives of Turkish companies operating in Nis, Aleksinac, Vladicin Han and Vranje attended the meeting as well.
