Executive and Board of Directors meeting Antalya - Turkey
Introduction Speech of the President
At the opening of the meeting the president made an introductory speech in which he presented the state of FIJET. “My thanks go to Mr. Ertan SandÄ±kçÄ±oÄŸlu, the President of ATURJET and his team for the perfect organisation of this meeting in this wonderful hotel…
I also would like to express my thanks to those who came to Antalya to attend this important meeting, or gave proxy to be represented. I understand those who for one reason or another couldn’t come to the meeting but I cannot understand those who voluntarily refused to be with us. I have wished it would have been much better and much more productive to achieve the changes wished by all with the contribution of all. It is normal and acceptable that we have different opinions and different attitudes. But we can easily reach a fair consensus in a spirit of civilized dialogue and through frank and responsible discussion. My hope is that those who are not with us today will be with us tomorrow and that wisdom and Fijet interests will prevail over any other consideration. “
The EC and The Board unanimously decided to implement the principle of “one country, one vote” for all decisions made during the meeting.
