Minister Mr. Davutoğlu gave speech at the opening ceremony, Mr. Davutoğlu said "For the best of our country there should be a balance between normal high schools and technical and vocational schools. Within the framework of national education policy, we will eliminate the injustice between the mentioned schools; we will especially focus on universities to provide even employment opportunities to students. Mehmet Tuza Pakpen Technical and Industrial Vocational High School set an important example for this."

Pakpen, which was founded at Konya now, is a worldwide company, built Mehmet Tuza Pakpen Technical and Industrial Vocational High School in Konya Organized Industrial Zone in an effort to resolve the problem of non-qualified labor force in Turkey and donated to Ministry of National Education. Pakpen has been in construction industry since 1970 and is the only company that produces every instrument used in the construction sector from garden accessories to exterior cladding doors, pipes and insulation products. The school Pakpen’s Chairman Mehmet Tuza built on a 30.000m2 area with 800 student capacity started 2012-2013 education year with 125 students.

The school accepted students for 2012-2013 education year was officially opened on 17 October 2012, Wednesday with a ceremony Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu and many guests attended.

Mr. Davutoğlu said "new opening of anything is always promising but school openings with happy students is much more beautiful and valuable than the others. I am happy about three other subjects, first of all, building and opening a school is a big support for the education system, it is a big clear door for our young people, meaning it is also a new door for our country. Our government policy eliminated unequal coefficient between schools. University is not a dream for students that will study here. This school is the best supporter of our policy. Students graduated from technical and vocational high schools will have equal rights with students graduated from normal high schools.

Secondly; Konya’s economy is continuously growing. Except Konya Organized Industrial Zone, we also built Konya Energy Area a short while ago. With all these investments Konya will become one of the leader cities in Turkey. Thus, employees will be needed to reinforce this infrastructure. Pakpen is already a very important entity for Konya’s industrialization. We would like to thank them for their support in a different platform.

Least but not last, third reason for my happiness is the cooperation between organizations. Municipalities, chamber of Industries, Chamber of commerce should all work together to create synergy. We can obviously see the synergy here."

Mr.Davutoğlu also speak to students, "Our precious students, we are glad to see the smile on your faces. As long as we have charitable businessmen, your future will always be bright. I would like to thank everyone who contributed to school and help young people to have hopes for a much better future."

We work hard to reach our goals and always had belief in ourselves. I have always seen benefits of graduating from an art school that helped to have a profession. I really hope that this school will be a bridge for young people to reach their goals. Factories in Konya need educated employees.
