BDU published a “Message” for the 100th Foundation Year of the Republic of Turkey. The content of the message is as follows;
Today, we are celebrating the 100th anniversary of our Republic as the heirs that our ancestors left us as a legacy. We are happy, excited, enthusiastic and grateful as a nation. The Republic of Turkey was born from an idea. It has reached its centenary year with the goal of catching up with the Contemporary Civilisation.
Our Republic offered us the right to live, freedom, being an individual and the consciousness of being a nation capable of self-government. Mustafa Kemal Atatürk and his comrades-in-arms, who started the War of Independence, were determined and determined to build the country of the future. Our Republic started with a dream and was founded as a new state with new generations with “free mind, free conscience”.
The fire of revolution that founded our Republic is still burning with all its vitality today. Our democracy, our freedom, our fundamental rights, our sense of citizenship come from the commitment and courage of our people living in these lands to the Republic. The occupation was overcome and our Republic came into existence thanks to the sacrifices of fearless men and women in a desperate situation that was called impossible.
The experiences of history have shown us that for the foundation of freedom, independence, peace, stability and tranquility, we must live courageously and protect our Republic.
The light of our Republic will continue to shine forever. As the guardian and protector of our Republic, BDU International Businessmen and Diplomats Association believes in the contribution of economic development to peace and the power of civil diplomacy.
