TCDD has taken our Logistics Center Project in Konya to 2005 investment plan in an area of 1000 square meters during 300 years. As MÜSİAD Konya, we established our Logistics Committee to closely monitor the process and to take the necessary interventions. 6. Our President The committee, which was established under the chairmanship of Lütfi Şimşek, visited over 200. Our committee told us that Konya needs a Logistics Center by door to door. Our committee has demonstrated that a thousand square meter area of 300 will be sufficient for loading and unloading stations and that this area will be inadequate as a logistics center in the following periods. During our visits in Ankara with the opinion leaders of Konya, we demanded the expansion of the Logistics Center. Then, the TCDD revised its work and decided to increase the Logistics Center area to 1 million square meters and then to 1 million 350 thousand square meters. In this process, our Logistics Committee has put its signature under important works. We organized numerous meetings and conferences. To give an example; Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu in Konya period with the participation of Turkey, we realized the brain Logistics Consultation Meeting. Later, with the support of MEVKA, we published the TR TR 52 Konya- Karaman Region Logistics Strategy Plan Preliminary Report '. We held the Konya-Karaman-Mersin Logistics Meeting with the participation of Economy Minister Zafer Çağlayan, Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu, Mersin, Konya, Karaman Governors and deputies, Mayors and businessmen of this 3 province. We continued to work for the realization of our project, not limited to these meetings. The process was longer than we expected. This process did not lead us to despair. Curiously, the news came on December 2016. The tender of Konya Logistics Center, which will contribute greatly to our city, was realized. The Logistics Center Project, the foundation of which will be laid, will increase the exports of not only Konya but also all cities in our region. We would like to thank MÜSİAD Konya, the Presidents of the previous term, the members of the Board of Directors and the members of the committee who have contributed to the project since the beginning of the project and have taken into consideration the interests of Konya with the principle of equality in all its works.
