Professor Dr. Sami Ozcan, "Turkey's geographical position, is a bridge between Asia and Europe, the world is a very important strategic advantages in terms of transport networks and logistics services. In order to take advantage of these advantages, we are happy to follow that very important investments have been made within the framework of transportation and logistics services. Again in the revitalization of the historic silk route point in this context, Turkey has put its signature to the very important work. In this context; Implementation of the Baku-Tbilisi-Kars Railway Project, which closely concerns the Kars of Europe-Caucasus-Asia Transport Corridor, including Bulgaria, Armenia, Georgia, Iran, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Romania, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Ukraine. Steps taken for; The Marmaray project, which provides a great opportunity for uninterrupted transportation between Europe and Asia; 3. Airport, Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge, the leadership of the State Railways since 2006, including one in Kars well established in many parts of Turkey and the planned establishment of logistics centers and villages; In addition to these, important steps have been taken in many areas such as increasing the divided roads, high-speed train project and advances in air transportation, especially after 2000s. Turkey's place in the development of these steps is undisputed and Turkey will be able to get so much larger than the international trade in shares. The mentioned projects will also contribute to Kars' socio-economic development. Kars; It is a border province with a road line integrated in the railway line and an international airport. The BTK railway line can be connected to Turkmenistan via the Caspian, and the existing railway line in Kars can reach Iran, the Turkic Republics and China through an alternative railway project via Iğdır-Nakhchivan. Briefly, Kars, as a city of david, products manufactured anywhere in Turkey is an important crossroads for the transportation and transfer to these countries. I wish that the Logistics Center, which was taken to the end of the Baku-Tbilisi-Kars Railway Project and started to be established in the investment plans and started to be established, in order for this position of Kars to create economic benefits, will start operating as soon as possible. ”
"Euro-Kafkasya- Asia Transport Corridor and Turkey's Increasing Importance on" telling the accompanying slide show prepared by the conference AK Party Kars MPs Ahmet Arslan, "Well then supposedly so why Europe, Asia and in Northern Caucasus and the sine qua non of the capital Kars , here Turkey. Actually, it shows everything. There is no such country, so 3 can make geostrategic and geotherapeutic bridges to the continent. In this sense, we are very lucky to be in the name of Anatolia in Turkey. But have we been able to make that right? Unfortunately, we couldn't afford this geography. Whoever wants to leave this geography as a homeland, as a Fatherland, has martyred at least 1,5 million in Kars geography. Therefore, you know all the importance of the Anatolian geography in this sense, Dolayısıyla he said.
Aslan said, anlat This photo actually tells everything. where Turkey today on this slide, the world's 17. In terms of economy, size, 2015 has a trade volume of about 145 billion dollars with imports of 210 billion dollars, in accordance with the corresponding 350 in this year. And again, we set targets for 2023. In order not to reveal these goals only, we said that 2023 will be one of the top ten economies in the world. And we said again that we need to target the 500 billion dollar trade in order to be one of the top ten economies in the world. We have to target export. In order to achieve this, we have to give the right to the geography of Anatolia between these 3 continents. So far, there is a northern corridor, starting from East Asia in China during the Soviet Union period and going to western Europe. This northern corridor is a corridor leading to the direction, bearing and transport of all countries on this route. Again and again, a corridor further south corridor of Afghanistan via Iran to Turkey Winding leading European corridor. A corridor passing south of the Caspian Sea, but going up and down to the South again means a waste of time. And again, the common corridor, the common corridor for creating trade routes, starts from China. Kazakhstan via Azerbaijan, Georgia, Turkey and Kazakhstan as it will go through Turkey to Europe could take over in Russia. And wool from Turkmenistan, Turkmenbashi Port from Azerbaijan, namely the transition to Baku, then to still see the front to go to Europe using the geography of Turkey that common hallway in particular meet in Anatolia, part of us very much towards Europe concerns, ilgilendir he said.
