Important advice and warning for railway from Gürdoğan

Gürdoğan, 'Let's do the rentable. Let's not pursue adventure, 'he said.

While the connection between the Baku Tbilisi Kars railway line and Trabzon, which was recently opened with the participation of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, was discussed, a significant proposal came from Ahmet Hamdi Gürdoğan, President of the Eastern Black Sea Exporters Union, which was considered to be more beneficial.

Ahmet Hamdi Gürdoğan stated that Trabzon should be connected to the railway connecting the city between China and Europe via Batumi for many years, and everyone in Trabzon is talking about the railway. But if we are aiming to trade, import and export from this line, are we not aware of this? We are exporters, but those who have nothing to do with business speak unknowingly.

Trabzon connects to Erzincan, Samsun, there are railway, how many wagons come and go, how much export is done.

What we need to connect to Erzincan and Samsun in the urgent need to reach the Netherlands through China. First of all, it is necessary to build Trabzon Batumi Railway.

Baku Tbilisi Kars railway connect to Trabzon. Where's this line going? Baku. The line going to Baku through the Caspian Sea will contribute a lot to us, and it is not a line that is about us.

There is also a problem with the trucks working on this line. When the Caspian Sea is broken, 20 is waiting for the day to load.

It is on the Silk Road, which I call the salvation of Trabzon and the region. If we can connect to the European line of China over Russia, we get a significant share from this big cake.

the new route of this line with the recent import of meat from the Netherlands to China, as well as in a short period of days 16. The containers entered China and entered Chengdu through the Aladag Pass border crossing in the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.

This route, which normally takes 40 / 45 days, is now 16 day. Can you imagine that we will be able to ship from Trabzon to China and Europe with this line. In other words, we will be in the middle of the most important trade line like the Silk Road in the world.

Now I would want to connect to the Baku line to make someone look nice, why would they ever contribute to us. I don't want my state hurt. I wouldn't want my state to invest their money on an unsuitable line. This won't help us. We need to connect to the new line, which is the most rantable line of our Silk Road.

Regional provinces, the governors and politicians of the provinces of the region should also focus on this. The line of European trains is the most important and most profitable line that will connect us to the Silk Road. Connecting to this new Silk Road line will be the most beneficial for our country and for our region. There is no need to deal with things that will not pursue an adventure. China European trains line the region's liberation of the country's most important trade volume can occur is the line 'he said.

  1. Mr. Gürdoğan Have you ever opened the Google Earth and looked at the railway routes from Batumi? It's clear you're not looking at your suggestion. 2 going from Batumi to 1 direction 2. Tbilisi - Baku, Krassnodar on Poti-adler-bolshoy-sochi along the Black Sea coast is divided into two and one of them goes in the direction of Kazakhstan. Now you are a Chinese or Dutch exporter. You lower the load from the Kazakhist to the sochi faith, or you will go about a further 4 km, and on the way, you pass at least XNUMX over the international port to Trabzon. Look, your mind is one way. Trabzon bayburt-Gümüşhane should be connected to Erzurum, Kars, Nakhchivan connection should be opened on Iğdır.
