. It is extremely important to use the sea intensively in a gulf city and increase the number of vehicles, vessels and piers. We have serious problems here. We need to make repairs on the piers. We need to wait for approval from Ankara. We will park our ships in stormy weather and have no place to spend the night. We want the fishing shelter next to Bostanlı Ferry Port. Hopefully, in the 3 months before we finish, we can get that permission and connect our ferries to a fearless, safe harbor, bunker at night. I want to send this request to the government officials on the day we reached the 1 millionth passenger on the ferry today. I had this issue in the files I forwarded to Ankara.
