IMG_3403 cThe projects carried out by Fethiye Chamber of Commerce and Industry laid the foundations of 12 month tourism in Fethiye. The administration of the Chamber with the presidency of Akif Arıcan that have been working very hard to increase the service quality of the Chamber and develop our town economically and socially carry out projects to extend the tourism season in Fethiye. The Chamber President Akif Arıcan pointed out, “When we consider the opportunities in our town, tourism lasts not for 3-4 months but for 12 months. We should work hard together for this. As the Chamber, we are ready to do what we should do in this platform.” While the tourism season has been shortening every year, the projects to extend tourism season carry on. The shortened tourism season causes unemployment, recess in economic life and problems in social life in our town so the Chamber of Commerce and Industry carries out projects to enliven the economic life, extend the tourism season, and prevent unemployment. The Chamber aims at offering different alternatives to holiday-makers except the sea-sun-sand tourism in our region. As a variety of alternative tourism, walking tracks have been introduced at fairs by the Chamber and projects to extend tourism season are considered in the first place. The 12 month tourism goal first introduces the walking tracks, cycling roads, the cable car project which is planned to be made a tender and enable 12 month season for paragliding even in cloudy weather and winter months, two tracks to be opened at 1200 and 850 m in June and training tracks to be opened at 300 and 600 m to make Babadağ an attraction centre. The Chamber Board also works very hard to open a Faculty of Management as part of Muğla University to bring significant contributions to our town economically and socially. Courses opened in cooperation with the Turkey Employment Agency to prevent unemployment have become a hope to cover the needs of qualified staff for the administrations. The Chamber President Akif Arıcan maintained they worked very hard to enliven the economic life of our town and carried out the substructure projects to extend tourism season from 3-4 months to 12 months. Arıcan stated despite the high touristic potential of our region, tourism season lasted very short and it affected the economic and social life of our town badly: “When we consider the opportunities of our town, tourism lasts not for 3-4 months but for 12 months. We should work hard to carry it out. As the Chamber, we are ready to do everything we should do at this platform.” FG)
