Karatay is an ancient district with a population of 370,000 and covers an area of 2,800 square kilometers. It is a significant tourism hub, attracting around 3-4 million tourists every year. In addition to tourism, we are also an agricultural city with vast farming areas. Karatay stands out as one of Konya's most important districts in terms of agricultural production. However, in recent times, we have witnessed the rise of industrial sites in Karatay due to the major transformation in our city. Many of Konya's industrial zones are relocating to Karatay. Currently, we have around 70 industrial sites, large and small, with the Aykent Footwear Industrial Site alone comprising 1,500 workshops."

He specifically emphasized the importance of collaborations in agricultural production. Cheikh Gueye mentioned, "I visited Konya with my wife and friends because I love this city. Konya is a well-known and cherished city in Senegal as well. As you pointed out, Konya's significance in agriculture and animal husbandry is widely recognized. In Senegal, we have a significant company involved in poultry farming. Hopefully, this fruitful cooperation will continue to grow with the contributions of Konya's businessmen and yourself."
