In order to improve business and living environments in cities which will serve as “Growth Poles” in national and regional terms, multi-faceted projects will be supported through relevant organizations in such areas as business support services for SMEs, fostering entrepreneurship and employment opportunities, diversification of and improving quality in tourism services and building brands for local goods and services.
Support will focus on the development of those sectors and areas in which the city concerned has its competitive power and unique characteristics. The pilot implementation at the first stage will first take place in Diyarbakır and then expanded to two other cities in the region (Gaziantep and Sanlıurfa). Funds allocated will be used for both intensifying existing activities and supporting new practices through new instruments and means.
