Drawing upon our knowledge and experience, now we are stepping to a whole new cooperation. We are happy to have Mövenpick, an international brand managed by Accor, in our Çamlıvadi and Saklıvadi projects built as part of our main brand, European Residences. We are excited to see the value the brand will add. Equipped with the state-of-the-art technology and built with a resilient and aesthetic architecture, the buildings will offer an attractive combination of Mövenpick's excellence and Turkish hospitality. I hope that this investment and partnership will bring joy to both parties and to the tourism industry.
