Other representatives of migrants – especially in the cultural area and the business realm – are also invited to join the BIF and to support it in an active or passive way.

In addition, we are trying to win representatives of the television stations of the Federal Republic of Germany as well as of Turkey for the BIF and to integrate them into the current work of the initiative. Moreover, we strive for the participation of representatives of business and the educational sector, as well as for the support of other personalities active in public life.

At present, we are talking to a variety of players in order to win them for a participation.
