Tourism Professionals concern about recent events

Tourism investors in Mardin which has a very rich culture and antic history that has become a very important destination in recent years, are the most affected groups that concern about the latest events and developments igniting outbreak of violence in the region.

Ozgur Azad Gungor, Head of MARTOD, said that, “The city has affected very badly with the latest incidents occur in the region, that tourist don’t come to a place where there isn’t peace.”

Reconciliation Process must resume

Citing that, “As being the tourism investors in the region we are really concern about the recent developments.”  Gungor reminded that, “We have been facing serious trouble since the 6-8 October Kobani incidents and events occurred afterwards.”

Investors worry about recent developments

Stating that Mardin has created awareness with its Religious and Cultural tourism different from west cities, Gungor said that, “With more than 6 thousand bed capacity; Mardin is the biggest tourism city in the region that investors in the city really worry about recent developments.”

We lose our foreign market

Emphasizing that tourism is a sensitive business sector that primarily requires tranquility, Gungor said that, “The emerging developments that worry everybody, naturally it worries the tourism investors most. When we peruse the recent events, The ISIS threat in our borders really renders us to lose the foreign market that is normally very lively in July- August term. As tourism investors in Mardin; we make preparations for internal market to host our guests in September and October months. We have tour reservations. But the recent events engendered single cancellations. If the circumstances don’t calm down, Mardin, region and the country tourism and economy will be damaged seriously. As you can see, no one would want to come to a place where bullets fired and bombs exploded. And this situation wouldn’t leave any tourism investor nor tourists and nor any people who hope to be employed in this sector. We have a demand as tourism investors in the region from parties to go back to reconciliation table and resume the negotiations. We want these events to end and continue to have peace in our region again.” (ILKHA)
