Blue Growth

İZMİR as The Centre of Attraction of the Mediterranean.

İzmir, the largest city in the Aegean Region in terms of both population and foreign trade, hosts 22 different ports with its coastal and coastal interaction areas. İzmir conducts 75% of its export of about 15 billion dollars by sea transportation. As İzmir Development Agency, we aim to lead blue growth by evaluating this superior characteristic of our region in a perspective that will contribute to the sustainable growth of the city, especially through the development of maritime transport and port management.

In line with this goal, we are focusing on the coastal economy, and we are working on the development of maritime transportation and port management, sustainable growth of maritime and maritime sectors, production of value-added products through design, development of creative industries and increasing economic diversity on the coast.
