Aykut Yazirli, director of Turkey Office, Asia American European Culture Exchange & Development Center (AAEC), and a Turkish entrepreneur, accepted iChongqing's exclusive interview to talk about his stories in Chongqing. He first came to Chongqing in 2011 and has witnessed the fast pace of change in Chonqing.

Doing business in Chongqing

Aykut came to China in 2010 because of his work in a big motorcycle company in Turkey. The Turkish company has sent him to Guangzhou, the capital of Guangdong province, for they cooperate with motorcycle manufacturer Haojue Holdings.

In 2011, he changed the position with one of his turkey workmates working in Chongqing. By chance, he came to Chongqing in May for the first time.

Years later, Aykut opened his own company in Chongqing, mainly doing motorcycle and cars export from China to Turkey.

"I want to keep going to do my business like motorcycle and spare parts business, so I open my own company in Chongqing. And it was easy," said Aykut.

There's some support from the Chonqing government if you open the company in some districts, such as preferential tax policies.

And due to the epidemic, the restaurant that Aykut and his friends regularly visit has closed.

During that time, Aykut even opened a restaurant with one of his foreign friends. He said it was always his dream to open a restaurant because people in Chongqing and Turkey have the most brilliant food, and both people like eating.
