Tarhan ası In accordance with the procurement law, the interests of public institutions should be preserved and a low-cost, impartial and fair tender is required. The tender covers the railway line to be built specifically for a fertilizer plant. How true is this to be given to Cengiz Construction? We're talking about a difference of 109 million pounds.
