The occupancy rate in our region is around 90. The existence of the university and the use of natural gas since the year 2015 has made the region more attractive and more advantageous in terms of both qualified labor force and energy in the face of other OIZs. Considering the investment projection of 2023 year of our province, Tokat obliged the inclusion of a certain part of the person and treasure area adjacent to OIZ boundaries to the region. The fact that the thought area is not limited to climate, geography, meteorological, property, infrastructure, soil structure, transportation and institutions and organizations, and also being adjacent to the existing OIZ has encouraged and obliged this area to have additional space. If the area in question is also approved by the Ministry of Science, Industry and Technology, it is foreseen that at least 60 company will start production in the 36 hectare area and 2 bin 500-3 will provide employment for a thousand people. Considering the employment of 425 bin 4 in the existing 100 hectare area, it will be seen that it will create a significant added value both in terms of the type of investment, quality and employment in the field to be added. As a result, if the proposed area is included in the OIZ, employment in the province will increase the employment of qualified labor force, unemployment will decrease, export potential will increase, economic added value will be provided to the region and 2023 year targets will be contributed to our government.
WEIGHT WILL BE GIVEN
What measures can be taken to ensure that OIZ managements and firms can produce more?
Our province is mainly in the field of agricultural products. Therefore, the agricultural machinery sector is well developed. We aim to increase our exports by creating sectors on food which is a branch that will not end by developing this area as a region. We believe that other regions in our country will be successful in this area with the products in their geography, underground and aboveground resources.
