“We must know and promote the culture of Akhism”

16.09.2021 / Kırşehir

The Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges of Turkey (TOBB) President M. Rifat Hisarcıklıoğlu attended the 2021 UNESCO Akhi Evran Memorial Year - Akhi Evran Artisan Meeting held in Kırşehir Cacabey Square.​

Speaking at the event attended by President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, Hisarcıklıoğlu expressed his gratitude to the Kırşehir residents who have embraced Akhi Evran's legacy.

Hisarcıklıoğlu expressed his gratitude on behalf of his community, emphasizing that President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who knows this trust best and is also an 'Akhi father', has always supported the Akhism culture by preserving it.

“For us, the place of Akhism culture is different. Because Akhism is the root of us as a community. It is the first professional organization in the world. Many of the services we provide to our members today are reflected in the past and the work done by the organization to this day. Our chambers system, which forms the roof of the private sector in the world today, is the current manifestation of the akhism in our history.”

Pointing out that Akhism is the first professional organization in the world, Hisarciklıoğlu continued: “We must know and promote the Akhi culture well. Because each of these values is indispensable for lasting success in business life. The late Neşet Ertaş says, 'Working with love is tireless.' Today’s Akhis engage in business in every geography of the world, proudly flying our flag around the world. May Allah grant us the opportunity to contribute to the preservation and development of the Akhism culture.”
