Ardahana Investors Need Rail and Air to Arrive
Ardahan Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ATSO) President Latif Tosunoğlu said, "Railway and airway are necessary for investors to come to Ardahan."
Speaking to the journalists in his office, Tosunoğlu stated that it is a great advantage for Ardahan to be in the 6th region in the incentive law, but this is not enough for them:
“When we say to the tourist, 'This is the 6th Region, come and invest', the first question he asked us without looking at the potential of Lake Çıldır and without looking at the potential of the Yanlızçam ski resort is' Is there an airport? Of course, he is right. Moreover, although it is possible to ski all over Ardahan in winter. In Çıldır Lake, 6 months ice skating and water sports are done in summer. Why does he not come, the tourist says whether there is an airport or not. Why doesn't the fabricator come? The manufacturer says, do you have a railroad? How can I get the raw material cheaply? Therefore, it is not enough just to have a good incentive certificate.
An incentive zone will be laid with all its feet so that the investor can come and make an investment.
Thanking the government for the importance it attaches to this region, Tosunoğlu said, “We thank the government for the importance it attaches to this region. However, I express this in every environment, it is not enough. So is it possible to compare Ardahan with other provinces? No investor has come so far. Why is that? Because the investor is looking at different alternatives. In the fabricator, 'do you have a railroad, how can I cost the raw material cheap? He is right when he looks at it from this point of view ”.
Underlining that it is a great advantage for Ardahan to be in the 6th region in incentives, Tosunoğlu also underlined that important factors are lacking, “An incentive zone will be laid with all its feet so that the investor can come and invest. So until yesterday, our road connected with the Black Sea was closed due to snow and snow. This is a very serious problem. Therefore, I say this, railway and airway to Ardahan are now essential. The government has made very serious investments, I think it can make investments that are essential for us ”.
