Minister of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communication Ahmet Arslan said, “Istanbul New Airport will initially employ 100 thousand people, 20 times that of Tüpraş. When we come to 2023, when the other phases come into play, 225 thousand people will work, 45 times more than Tüpraş. It will indirectly employ approximately 1,5 million people.” said.

Arslan, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, President of the aircraft, that yesterday in Istanbul New Airport, transferring that this is a historic moment, the airport has reported that both Turkey and this has a different meaning for the world.

Turkey's largest mills, industrial Arslan striking one of the giants of the Tupras, "is currently working 35-36 thousand people in Istanbul New Airport. When it is finished, it will initially employ 100 thousand people, 20 times of Tüpraş. When we come to 2023, 225 thousand people will work when other phases come into effect, 45 times of Tüpraş. If you count the sections that it indirectly affects and receive services, it will employ approximately 1,5 million people. The best indicator of why the world is disturbed by the 3rd airport. ” he spoke.

Brand project for Turkey

The world of aviation Arslan striking the west of the center of gravity of Europe's record eastward, China and India due to the development said that the point now where the center of gravity of world aviation Turkey. Arslan pointed out that this situation shows the correct decision of the airport and continued as follows:

“We investigated the location of our President 10 years ago and started with the instruction to build an airport to serve the world. Fortunately we started that day, it would be late if we started today. It will serve 90 million passengers in the beginning, 150 million in the next stages, and 200 million if necessary. Turkey will occur in the year 2023 the gross domestic product of close to 5 per cent will only create this airport. This airport is very meaningful in this sense. World airlines will also be able to come and go to remote parts of the world. These will generate an income with the use of our airspace, planes landing, passengers come and shop and will contribute to the national economy. It will have added value not only in terms of employment but also economically. A fabulous project is a prestige project is a project for Turkey brand, is also the country's project will contribute to the economy and to employment. "

Arslan also evaluated the expansion decision for various airports in Europe after the Istanbul New Airport, adding:

“There is a circulation in world aviation and people are flying somewhere. Someone provides this service. When the new airport is put into service with this size, someone will not be able to provide this service. We are the center of gravity of world aviation, people will prefer us when they serve people with our advantageous position. Since people will prefer us, they will have to grow up, shrink, they are uncomfortable with it. In many parts of the world, there are still airports that last for 10-12 years. Istanbul New Airport had started 4 years ago, it will carry passengers in 4,5 years. This bothers many places, billing some people in many places. ”

The name of the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure is much more inclusive and clear.

Regarding the steps to be taken in the new system that will be formed after the election, the Ministry of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications and some other ministries, Arslan said that bringing together similar ministries with similar jobs will reflect positively in terms of coordination. Arslan, said:

“A change in the name of the Ministry of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications will not have a negative impact on projects. Our ministry both serves as a transportation and produces projects related to these. Our General Directorate of Highways constructs infrastructure and offers it to service. We have units that make infrastructure such as port, railway and airport and transfer them to businesses. The Ministry is already making the infrastructure of all types of transportation. I think the name of the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure, which will come with the new system, is much more inclusive and clear. ” he spoke.

Referring to the "cyber attacks" that can be held on election day and the unrealistic news that will overshadow the election security, Arslan said that all necessary security measures were taken to make the election safe.

Especially in the elections, cyber security makes much more important attracted Arslan, said:

“We are constantly providing cyber security, not just during the election period. However, we care about being more vigilant during the election period. We work 7/24 with all public institutions and organizations on this matter. In addition, we also have intensive efforts to ensure that public service organizations take cyber security measures and monitor all of them in a center for 24 hours. We have trained many people with the thought that there may be more attacks. We have about 800 Cyber ​​Incidents Response Team in this regard. ”

Arslan stated that PTT will work with the civil administrations in carrying the votes cast in the election and emphasized that PTT is very experienced in the field of cargo.

We saved 11 billion dollars a year with transportation projects

On the question of the cost of conducting projects such as bridges and highways with state resources rather than with the Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) model, Arslan said that the works are done with the speed of the private sector when done with BOT.

The private sector is doing a faster job, there is a profit that draws attention, the public to find loans and finding the source is much more difficult, the private sector can find loans at a much lower cost by showing its own resources to the collateral.

Minister Arslan continued as follows: “When we did it ourselves as a country, we would either say 'we will do it in 20-25 years' because we did not have any money ready or we would have to borrow again, and 81 million would have to pay this debt. We would not be able to serve the rest of the country while paying for it. However, when the private sector does it, the user pays for the bridge, highway, tunnel and airport. There is a criticism that 'You give a guarantee, we pay for it because of the guarantee', there is some justification there. The feasibility already predicts that the guarantee figure will not be reached in the first few years and we will make the difference, but after a few years, the guarantee figure is reached, so the user pays for it all. Even if the user does not pay all, instead of paying 81 million for all, 81 million pays some of it.”

Reminding that they gave 135 thousand vehicles pass guarantee to Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge, Arslan said, “If we had not done with BOT, we would give all of his money as a citizen. In a few years, it will be given to the user again, as this will fully reach the guarantee. ” said.

We spent 15 billion liras on transportation projects in 474 years

Arslan stated that the airports made by BOT were in their own hands, and they rented them and reported that they had obtained 10 billion dollars.

Explaining that the motorways and the Eurasia Tunnel will remain at the end of the operation period and will earn income by renting them, Arslan said that they will serve the rest of the country with these revenues.

Referring to the opposition's criticism of tolls, Arslan said:

“It says, 'Light commercial vehicles pass 11 lira and 25 cents on the first two bridges in Istanbul, but from the bridge constructed by Recep Tayyip Erdogan, it goes to 114 lira at an exorbitant price.' It is logical and normal to compare the first two bridges with the Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge. Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge transition number is 17 lira 40 kurus. He compares apples and pears, and his mind is awake. Körfez goes to Osmangazi Bridge, wakes up. Before the Osmangazi Bridge, the ferries spent $ 40 on cars. Now they are applying a price of about 45-60 pounds, as the bridge is built. They did not apply their fathers for good, they lowered the price because the bridge was opened. If you don't like it, you walk around the bay. Why does he use the bridge? He knows that if he wanders the bay, he knows that it will be more expensive, that he will spend more fuel, there is time cost, carbon dioxide emission, there is a possibility of an accident. "

Indicating that they spend 15 billion liras on transportation projects in 474 years, Arslan said that they save 11 billion dollars every year from time, fuel and carbon dioxide emissions. Arslan said, “These cannot understand and cannot perceive this. While using it, he prefers the bridge, does not travel from the bay, but when it comes to talking, he especially confuses the apple with the pear. ” found the assessment.

Did this man come from outer space?

Arslan reminded the CHP's presidential candidate Muharrem İnce's remarks about technology use and Industry 4.0:

“Did this man come from outer space or came from abroad? books on the table in Turkey for 15 years, free books. "I will give the book for free," he says. Leave the health service until the age of 18, until the age of 25 is given to students free of charge. He says' I will come, I will do it for free. I will make the universities free, 'he says. It is not known that the fees were removed during the AK Party period. Since he is not from abroad, I think sometimes did he come from outer space? Quantum, if it came from outer space, it's normal to say industry 4.0. ”

Stating that they will make TÜRKSAT 6A completely domestic and national, they will send them to space in 2020, Arslan said that many experimental satellites such as GÖKTÜRK1 and GÖKTÜRK 2 are now in space.

Arslan, stated that the machinery is the industry's infrastructure communications between 4.0 and smarter machines, many from Turkey on this issue, he said a couple times. Current country Armstrong explaining that enables communication between devices 4,5 million machines, at 500 times the speed of the internet that Turkey, broadband subscribers is zero, the AK Party government reported that during the period reached 69 million.

The number of fiber optic subscribers 2 million 300 thousand that attract attention, the cable length of 325 thousand kilometers, he stressed.

Streaming live thanks to 4,5G

Arslan, Turkey's 4,5g'y expressed that the country implements the world's rare, "Currently Muharrem was doing a live broadcast by mobile phone. It does this thanks to 4,5G. Let them all know what technology they are using, and who knows what has been done, should not say any of them. It goes down as it speaks, and as it speaks it goes down in the eyes of the citizens. ” he spoke.

The claim that the internet was interrupted in Izmir rally

Regarding İnce's claim that internet access was interrupted at the Izmir rally, Arslan said that internet access could be discontinued within the framework of the country's survival, the decisions of the judicial authorities for security and counter-terrorism purposes. Arslan noted the following:

“Mr. İnce should know that well. If you did not give the citizen what Ince talked to, including the Anadolu Agency, İnce was better off now. Because it reflects you and the media, it sinks as you speak, and what it says is old. The media will do their job, the citizen does his job, and everything turns out. Especially, there is no such thing as internet interruption ... As the citizen learns what they say, 'Sorry, we are full of empty words.' said. So the citizen will teach them the lesson, as they learn this, they are scribbling it, scribbling it. It would be useful to cut the internet, but we wouldn't do it in life. ”
