Kemalpaşa Logistics Center's Infrastructure Completed: AK Party Izmir Deputy İlknur Denizli Kemalpaşa Logistics Center, together with Kemalpaşa Organized Industry Board and Transportation Regional Manager Ömer Tekin, made examinations.
In the statement he made after the examination, he said that one of the 2011 projects announced to Izmir residents in the 35 elections had completed the part of the infrastructure and superstructure works to be carried out by the Ministry of Transport and became ready for tender with build-operate-transfer.
Kemalpaşa Logistics Center, which will turn Izmir, the gateway to the Aegean region to the outside, into Europe's important logistics base, will provide job opportunities for thousands of people, and will serve in an area of 3 million square meters. Road-rail link with investors now expecting region is Turkey's largest logistics center.
WE ARE IMPORTANT FOR THE RAILWAY CONNECTION
Stating that another feature of İlknur Denizli Kemalpaşa Logistics Center is the importance it attaches to railway transportation, “You need to ensure price and quality competition together in the international arena. Transportation cost is very important in exports. Izmir is a port city, you need to make the most of the railroad in order to improve freight rates. Kemalpaşa Logistics Center will be the transfer center of the freight of the organized industrial zones in Kemalpaşa, Turgutlu, Manisa, Torbalı, Aydın and Denizli with its railway connection. Thus, it will also enable the industrialist and exporter to move their production from the factory to İzmir Alsancak, Aliağa and North Aegean Ports as soon as possible and cost-effectively ”.
ITS GROWTH WITH IZMIR ENVIRONMENT
Stating that the production in the periphery of Izmir's historical heritage in commercial sense is to process it sometimes and deliver it to the market as raw material, Denizli said, “Cities have accumulations and experiences from their past. İzmir's feature of being a port city in this sense comes from its past. As AK Party, our aim is to carry this accumulation further and to add this gain to the Izmir economy as an added value. During the election time, we started out with 35 projects that will provide business and food for Izmir, which will expand the city that will bring Izmir to the place it deserves. We put 35 projects into service one by one. Kemalpaşa Logistics Center is one of them ”.
Stating that in addition to the transportation facilities of the logistics center, all official institutions related to transportation will be found and integrated services will be provided, Denizli said, “Kemalpaşa Logistics Center will provide very important benefits for our country and Izmir. As the AK Party, our goal for 2023 is to reach $ 500 billion in exports. As İzmir, our goal should be to make 100 billion dollars of this export from İzmir ports along with the Aegean Region. Kemalpaşa logistics center is a very important step to achieve this goal. Therefore, the most important thing in Kemalpaşa Logistics Center is to connect the production areas of the Aegean Region with the organized industrial zones, especially the railway, ”he said.
IZMIR'S CLOSING, ITS ENERGY
İlknur Denizli stated that it is necessary not to expect all the things to be done from the state in order for cities to grow and develop, and local dynamics should fulfill their responsibilities in local administrations and used the following expressions: “We all know that industrial production and consequently exports in İzmir do not increase at the desired level. Various circles ignore this negative and bad trend, cover it up and pretend it doesn't exist. However, when we look at the country in general in industrial growth, İzmir is in danger of falling into the second league. Exporting is not only for people working in production to make money. A constant relationship with the outside world allows you to understand what is happening in the world. What we live in today is an Izmir that is shutting down, getting offended with those around it and thus destroying its energy that dries it up. We have to say stop all together. We have to ask the question: is the local government doing its job? Let's face it, the local rulers in Izmir and the party, unfortunately, have not been able to unite Izmir around a target. He could not put together a vision because he could not put it. Izmir's problem is that the cadres of the CHP cannot understand Izmir and are inadequate for Izmir. We do our part one by one. Kemalpaşa Logistics Center will advance the commercial heritage of this city, which has been going on for centuries, and its port city identity. Here, the investors in Izmir fall on the logistics companies to be enthusiastic about the future of Izmir and to be the owner of this logistics center by cooperating with other companies in the sector if necessary. In this sense, every step to be taken should be supported. "
