During the battle with the global coronavirus pandemic, Turkey met a new management method with respect to local municipal works. İzmir Metropolitan Municipality stood out with its “crisis local administration” practices during the new era where planning and priorities have shifted significantly. Despite the heavy financial burden brought by the times, İzmir Metropolitan Municipality made investments of TRY 1.1 billion from the beginning of the year and did not disrupt its services to the city and the citizens.

The results of İzmir Metropolitan Municipality initiating measures before the first case was officially announced and during its spread have been reflected in economic tables.
