RİZELİNİN ENERJİSİ İSTANBULDA
At the opening ceremony Youth and Sports Minister Osman Aşkın Bak said, "We are giving energy each and every time we go as Rizeliler. Today we introduce Rize here. Rize is developing. Now it is also known as tourism with the tea. The promotion days in here will continue until Sunday. Together we must move this country further. We must be together to disrupt the games that are around us.
As Minister of Youth and Sports, I want to express a danger that threatens us. The drug issue threatens our young people, our society. We will give our boys our first love. What did they do in the street when they came home, what they did in school. Not from Twitter, not from Whattsap, but from my children who will not. My children will touch and we will touch. If we do not touch the street drug dealers are using "expressions.
VISITORS SHOULD HAVE TO HIS OURSELVES
Rize Governor Erdogan Bektas, who stated that 10 of the Rize Days were made this year, said, "We are opening today. We know that there is a lot of Rize in Istanbul than Rize. Our nurses do not just go by themselves, they also take their culture. For this reason, we can also mention a Rize identity in Istanbul.
RİDEF has done a good job creating a good exhibition area. Programs will be arranged here until close.
Those who have never seen Rize can smell a pinch of Rize here. Our visitors will feel like they are in Rize. For this reason, we are waiting here, especially at the beginning of our city. Every city needs introductions that can tell its beauty. Istanbul, like a metropolis, is a place where we can understand all the beauties of Rize in such a beautiful environment. I thank everyone who passed away and participated, "he concluded.
After the speeches at the opening ceremony, the program continued with the visit of the stands. Our President Mehmet ERDOĞAN visited our stand and presented to the Youth and Sports Minister Osman Aşkın Bak'a a gift.
We are waiting for Rize Days in Maltepe to drink Rize tea for all our guests to Istanbul Rize Promotion Days which will continue till 24th of September.
