“One Year to Go” Event Held for Ikitelli Integrated Medical Campus

On July 5th, a “One Year to Go” event was held at the construction site of the Ikitelli Integrated Medical Campus (Başakşehir City Hospital) in Istanbul, Turkey. Sojitz is involved in the project inpartnership with Turkey’s Rönesans Group.

The event was held to announce that the scheduled completion of the project has been moved up to the end of June 2020, three months earlier than planned at the outset of the project, to the Turkish Ministry of Health and financial institutions involved in the project such as the Japan Bank for International Cooperation and Nippon Export and Investment Insurance. The event also served to demonstrate that the construction is proceeding smoothly. Attendees from Sojitz included SMEO Ryutaro Hirai and Executive Officer / COO Ikuo Koinuma. A large number of local media outlets also attended the event, which was covered in the news. Four Sojitz project team members are on-site, working day in and day out to ensure that the medical campus will open as early as possible.
