Turkey is Europe's largest fleet with Turhan stated that, "Some countries are putting quotas and visas for our drivers. Konan quotas and visas do not increase the trade between these countries and increase the transportation cost. After all, this cost is paying the citizen who uses the materials. I have always emphasized that we are on the side of the liberalization of competition in transportation. Everyone says that this is true, but when politics and subtle economic issues come into play, protectionism begins. Everyone's trying to protect their transporter. We are both bringing these to the agenda and aiming to improve and improve the rights, law and business environment of our carriers. It's just that we struggle to not using any method to pass in front of all other sectors of injustice lived in Turkey in the international arena in the field of competition in the transport field. We bring the removal of unjustified barriers to continuous agenda against Turkey. "He said.
