Product Description Manidar
President of Giresun Provincial Assembly Mr. Mürşit Gürel ignores the importance of Trabzon in the region and ignoring the past of the trade and the explanations that the railway will be connected to Giresun by bypassing Trabzon over Erzincan.
Remind Your Prime Minister's Words
Our Prime Minister, Mr. Binali Yıldırım, said in his speech in Trabzon in November 2016, “The railway was Atatürk's will. We will make that will. Trabzon - Erzincan railway will be built until 2023 ”using the expression, the railway route has been determined and the investment has become clear. We would like to remind Mr. Gurel of the words of our Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım, who made huge investments during his tenure as the Minister of Transport and was the pioneer of investments in his duty as Prime Minister.
The region will rise as a whole
Of course, for the development of the Eastern Black Sea region as a whole, it is important to build a railway for all neighboring provinces such as Giresun. However, the railway connecting the East and Southeast Anatolia region to the Black Sea and waterways should first follow Trabzon route to Batumi and then east to Batumi and Western connection to Giresun via Samsun. The region, which we have been waiting for for years and which we see as a late investment, will lift the region.
Must be in Trabzon
This does not mean that we are against the construction of a railway to Giresun. It is obvious that the transportation link between the east and southeast Anatolia and the Black Sea train should be based in Trabzon in order to develop the commercial relations with the Middle East, Iran, Russia and the Caucasus.
