Dear guests,
Ladies and Gentlemen,

At the outset, I would like to express my special thanks to the Turkish Airlines for organizing such a beautiful reception on the occasion of opening of new sales office in Doha.

Anybody who reads the brief history of Turkish Airlines can easily notice that it has made a success story within a relatively short period of time. A state-run company which started its operations in 1933 with a fleet comprised of 5 modest airplanes, now has become a global brand with its more than 200 new generation airplanes and flying to many destinations. It has also become one of the most promising member of the Star Alliance.

As a result of its qualified services and commitment to unconditional customer satisfaction, THY won many awards like Skytrax’s “Best Airline Southern Europe” and “World's Best Economy Class Airline Onboard Catering”. Besides this, the sponsorship agreements with many international organizations and sport clubs have attracted worldwide attention on both THY and Turkey.

Dear guests,

Turkey and Qatar are two brotherly countries enjoying excellent relationships in every field. This relationship has a history of almost 500 years. Having such a distinguished background and based on our cultural affinities, cooperation between Republic of Turkey and the State of Qatar is developing into a bright future of cooperation.

Economic relations are of greater significance given the notable growth and dynamism demonstrated by the two countries. In particular, I am proud to see Turkish companies going from strength to strength in Qatar. Empowering the current status of relations between the economic and capital circles of our countries will remain at the focus of Turkish-Qatari bilateral relations.

It is for sure that the expanding political and economic relations will further consolidate ties at grassroots level. Turkish community in Qatar is already contributing to Qatar’s society and economy in the role of business holders, professionals and academicians. Greater number of Qataris visits Turkey each year, an indicator of flourishing human to human contacts. It will therefore remain high on my priorities to ensure that this relationship between our peoples continues on its upward course.

Despite all these positive facts, we will need to work harder to further enhance bilateral ties between Turkey and Qatar. For that reason, I would like to extend my gratitude once again to THY for its contribution to development of bilateral relations between the two countries.

I have no doubt about the future success of THY with its well-designed vision and core values which would make it globally preferred airline company.

Seizing this opportunity, I also wish all the success to THY in its new Office.

Thank you.
