Minister of Agriculture and Forestry Bekir Pakdemirli met with friends of his deceased father Ekrem Pakdemirli at dinner.
Minister Bekir Pakdemirli spoke in Manisa at the "Fidelity Meeting" organized in memory of his father Ekrem Pakdemirli, one of the deceased former ministers and said that he visited many provinces of Turkey and and wherever he goes, he encounters good memories of his father.
Minister Pakdemirli, who was touched from time to time in his speech about his father's memories, stated that he spent the most time with his father among his siblings and continued:
"When I lost my father, I lost my guide and my light. He was a good scientist and statesman. He worked hard, slept little. Everybody has a regret, and I'd like to spend more time with my father. I have to say this as a recommendation, this feeling cannot be felt before, but there is no day when I do not remember the deceased."
WE WILL COLLECT THE AGRICULTURE COUNCIL IN OCTOBER
Afterwards, Pakdemirli explained the activities to be carried out as the Ministry and said:
"We said we would follow a producer-friendly policy from the beginning of my ministerial post. When we follow these policies, we will be with our producer for grapes, hazelnuts, beets, wheat, barley, cereals and all other products as much as possible. We are able to get a bit of criticism about it. They can be angry at us when we give a figure above inflation but we have nothing to do, we need to make these productions sustainable. Very soon we will raise the milk prices. For 15 years, Agriculture Council has not gathered here. We will collect the Agriculture Council in october. Here we will discuss the ideas delivered to us. We'll talk about what services we can do and what benefits it will have. I think we will have an agricultural map that will shed light on the next 25 years in October."
Manisa Governor Ahmet Deniz, Presidential High Advisory Board Member Bülent Arınç, AK Party Manisa Provincial Chairman Berk Mersinli and many names, bureaucrats and friends who have made politics with the deceased Ekrem Pakdemirli participated the event.
Minister Pakdemirli presented pine saplings to the guests attending the meeting and taken souvenir photo at the event where a short video about Ekrem Pakdemirli's life is shared.
