The Province of Sanliurfa, in Southern Anatolia, has 1.4 million hectares of cultivable land of which 0.2 million ha are irrigated and the balance will be irrigated in the years to come.
Jacques Grysole was the International Expert for the Agri-food Sector and the Specialized Manufacturing (agricultural machinery and irrigation equipment) Sector.
He developed, assisted by a team of Turkish consultants, the two clusters. This included the preparation and animation of workshops with the local entrepreneurs on the cluster concept, inform them on initiatives that could inspire them, define the strategic options and select priority projects.
At the end of the process, a core group of entrepreneurs has been created with the commitment to carry the implementation of the action plan for the first year.
