"This visit is a landing to China"

During his China visits, Kurtulmuş said that meetings held with leading representatives of tourism sector and Turkish companies operating in China were "fruitful" and these meetings will be held regularly.

Kurtulmuş stated the following: "This visit is a landing to China, so to speak. We will continue to work with all our power to get results. I realized in these meetings with the Chinese that China attaches great importance to Turkey." 

Expressing that the Beijing administration regards Turkey as a strategic partner, Kurtulmuş marked that they seriously intend and aim to develop relations in all areas.

Underlining that Chinese minister requested for “Two million tourists to visit Turkey” in the bilateral discussion held the previous day, Kurtulmuş said, "This meeting has been extremely fruitful and I hope that this will lead to taking some steps which will yield results."

"Yunus Emre Enstitüsü to be opened in China soon"

"We held talks to inaugurate a Yunus Emre Enstitüsü centre in China. Hopefully, soon we will be able to open a YEE centre in China. We will take steps for the Chinese to open a Confucius Institute in Turkey in the same way. Currently they are in contact with some university centres. Thereby both the conference and the talks with the Chinese have been fruitful."
