It has been a great honor for me to serve in
New York City since 1 September 2014. I feel privileged to be in one of the
most dynamic and productive regions of the world in our jurisdiction area with
the states of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware.
We are working hard and trying to find better
ways to provide the high quality, fast and solution-focused consular service
for our citizens. We also aim to improve our relations with local authorities,
business networks and think thanks as well as to promote Turkey with the
support of Educational Attaché, the Culture and Tourism Attaché, the Commercial
Attaché, the Economy Attaché, the Attaché for Social and Religious Affairs and
the Counselor for Medical Cooperation.
We are also proud of the powerful presence of
Turkish-American community around New York with more than 70 active civil
society organizations. Our main objective is that Turkish community gradually
becomes more successful in every aspect. The unity and solidarity among our
community is the only way to reach this aim.
Taking this opportunity, I would like to extend
my best wishes and regards on behalf of myself and the Consulate staff.
