We aim for stronger railway with Public Private Sector Cooperation
While the railway infrastructure quality is being improved by the Ministry of National Education, General Directorate of Rail and General Directorate of Railways, TCDD Transport Inc. will carry out transportation with private sector approach and private sector will continue to increase in this sector. He said:: We work for the establishment of a railway market where liberalization is completed with fair competition conditions and a healthy functioning structure. At this point, however, we will not expect everything from the state. After that, private railway train operators will take responsibility for the development of the railway sector. Many companies from many sectors are interested in this process. We make the process easier, open the way, but the important thing is that the private sector takes place here, puts it under its hand, and we realize the growth of the sector together. In the aviation industry, THY has grown tremendously and became a world giant. Private sector companies have become capable of doing business around the world. Such a future is waiting for the railway sector. We want the private sector to take responsibility and take part in this business. Because it is much easier for us to realize the stronger railway sector together. Çünkü
