Gumushane Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GTSO) President Ismail Akcay, Erzincan-Gumushane-Trabzon Railway Project and made public statements about the different route discourses made important statements.
GTSO President İsmail Akçay stated that different itinerary rhetoric is unacceptable in public opinion and said, Değer I am gratefully welcomed the comments made by our President Şaban Aziz Karamehmetoğlu about Erzincan-Gümüşhane-Trabzon Railway Project.
RTSO President emphasized that he is Rize Nationalist in his statement and argues that Erzincan-Gumushane-Trabzon railway Project is a wrong line and that it is a line to be built on the Rize route.
It is not correct to compare the Erzincan-Gümüşhane-Trabzon route, which has no other alternative than the highway, to the region which has rich transportation roads such as sea, airway and highway.
This is the narrow view of ethnocentric nationalism that embraces the idea of us alone. It has no place when considering the country and social interests.
Mr. Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, President of the Republic, always emphasizes that the way to become stronger and richer as a country is through exports.
Today we have a significant export potential of 100 Million Dollars in Gümüşhane. The most important and the only alternative of our exports which may be multiples of this in the short and medium term is the rail network and transportation. Currently, the Erzincan-Gumushane-Trabzon railway project line has also been used as an important trade route in different historical periods since the past and has offered significant gains to all civilizations and states using this line.
We want to be rich not only with the province but with the country. Erzincan-Gumushane-Trabzon and the railway line to be built in this region, which has been used as an important trade route since the past for both regional and high interests of our country since the past, are the most accurate and the route tır.
