We Continued to Grow inOur Fortieth Year
As Limak, we are enjoying the pride of having left 2016 behind as a busy and successful year. While leaving our fortieth year behind, we continued to grow in all sectors where we operate and reached even closer to our goal of being included among firsts. Our Group completed a highly efficient year with the projects undertaken domestically and abroad.
Meanwhile, 2016 has been a rather difficult year for global economy. Significant fluctuations were created in the financial markets with Britains decision to depart from the European Union and the US Presidential Elections. On the other hand, the Turkish economy suffered even a greater pressure with the attempted coup and increasing risks, in addition to these difficulties in the global markets. This reflected on the economic activities adversely, especially during the last quarter of the year. Within the framework of all these developments, the Turkish economy still managed to achieve a positive growth, although it was below its medium-term potential. We believe that we will achieve a more positive growth than 2016, once the impacts of these developments are reduced and structural reforms are implemented in 2017.
As the Group, our objective is to be included among the top three on a regional basis, in our strategic sectors that may be listed as energy, cement and construction. Africa and the Balkans emerge to the forefront as our growth areas where we are rapidly investing in, outside of Turkey.
In our infrastructure investments, we continue to increase the operations at the LimakPort skenderun and Pristina Adem Jashari International Airport, which we are operating, in parallel with our capacity.
Recently, we are also enjoying the well-deserved pride of contributing in the strategic projects of Turkey. From these, we will complete the first phase of the Istanbul New Airport project, which will eventually reach a passenger capacity of 200 million, in 2018 and take it into operation. Meanwhile, we have completed the Ankara High-Speed Train Station project, the first and only high speed train station project of Turkey that we had undertaken with two partners, in 2016 and started its operation. The construction and operation of the Northern Marmara Highway 4th Section Project, interconnecting the additional roads of the Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge in Istanbul is also included among those that stand out in the many projects we have undertaken. In addition, we have started to work on the Lot 4 (Eskiehir-Greece section) of the TANAP-Trans Anatolia Natural Gas Pipeline Project, which was awarded to the joint venture where we are a part of. Our 1,100-bed capacity hotel construction in Cyprus is continued and we aim to open it in 2017.
From our investments in the field of energy, our investments are continued for the construction of the 100 MW Karg Dam and HEPP and as aimed to increase the capacity of the Hamitabat Natural Gas Combined Cycle Plant.

We plan to complete both projects during the first half of 2017. In the meantime, our group has been awarded the tender for the Grst Dam and HEPP project that will have 56 MW power and the construction is planned to be started in 2017, following the project development studies.
We have completed the Cairo International Airport Terminal Building No. 2 project, one of our prominent projects abroad, and the Banja Dam and HEPP, which is one of the two dam projects we have undertaken in Albania, in 2016. We have started the Kuwait International Airport Terminal II Project, which poses as the biggest contract awarded to a Turkish contracting company so far with a contract price of 4 billion 600 million dollars and is one of the most prestigious projects in the world. Meanwhile, our Ukraine Dnipro subway construction project, the contract for which we had signed in 2016, is continued. We are building two cement plants in Africa. We have already taken the factory in Mozambique into operation, while the construction of the project we have undertaken in the Ivory Coast is continued. In addition, we plan to complete the Aeroport International Blaise-Diagne Airport Project in Dakar, capitol of Senegal, in August 2017. We will also operate this airport for 20 years following construction.
We are following up on new projects outside of Turkey, namely in East Europe, Africa, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia, in addition to our numerous projects that are in progress.
We continue our efforts to minimize environmental impacts in the value chain in all fields we operate, and to create value for our social stakeholders and the society for a livable future, in addition to our successful economic performance in our operational and commercial activities. We follow a balanced and environment friendly growth strategy, acting on the principle of meeting the needs of today without risking the capacity of the future generations to meet their own needs in all our activities. With this vision, we published our 2014-2015 Sustainability Report, which is our second GRI approved sustainability report. Our report, which also included our practices for compliance with the principles of the United Nations Global Compact that we have signed, was found worthy of the gold prize, which is the second biggest prize, as a result of the evaluations in the 2015/16 Vision Awards organized every year by one of the most prestigious public communications platforms of the world - the American Communication Professionals League. We have already started to work on our sustainability report
that will cover 2016 and 2017 with this motivation, by updating our groups sustainability vision and reviewing the outlines of our strategic road map. We continue our journey as aimed to control the sustainability of our activities under many he
