On the occasion of Participation of Republic of Turkey to the EXPO 2012 Yeosu

Naci Sarıbaş 25.04.2012
I would like to welcome and thank everyone for sharing this evening with us.

“Land of civilizations connecting seas and continents” Turkey’s participation to Yeosu will mark the 161st year of taking part in World EXPOs.

This year I am aiming to launch “Turkish Wave” in Korea. And of course Yeosu EXPO 2012 will be at the center:

- A Turkish wave during the year in which we will celebrate the 55th anniversary of establishing diplomatic relations.
- In the year in which we have upgraded our relations to strategic partnership together with “blood brother” relationship that we enjoy.

I am aiming to present the following activities to the Korean art lovers.

-Emperors in Istanbul Exhibition (National Museum in Korea) İn Seoul starting 30th of April till 2nd of September and also in Busan from October to end of January 2013.
-Contemporary Art Exhibition
-Renowned Folkdance Group “Fire of Anatolia”
-Renowned Turkish Janissary Marching Band
-Whirling Dervishes
-Concerts
-Fashion Show
-Water Drums and so on.

Furthermore, during end of September and first half of October, I will be organizing “Turkish Cultural Week” here in Seoul.

I am confident that all these activities will further strengthen the already exceptional relations that we enjoy with Korea.

Lastly, I hope and wish that the “evil eye” you will be receiving at the end of this reception, will bring you luck in future.
