While the statement of Minister of Transport Adil Karaismailoğlu, who came to Ordu last week, saying 'We are working for the Samsun-Sarp Railway' was welcomed, NGO representatives said, "We expect our President to address this problem, we expect action, the project tender for the line must be done first." said.
KARAİSMAİLOĞLU WILL ACCELERATE THE PRODUCTION
Samsun Chamber of Commerce and Industry (STSO) President Salih Zeki Murzioğlu: I find the statement of Minister Karaismailoğlu about the implementation of the Samsun-Sarp Project very meaningful. I believe that our minister will accelerate the initiative to bring Samsun-Sarp to our country with a visionary perspective. The route, which will include Ordu, Giresun, Trabzon, Rize and Artvin from Samsun, will connect all these provinces to each other economically and will also support the development of the hinterland.
WE ARE WAITING FOR THE PROJECT TENDER
Ordu Chamber of Commerce and Industry (OTSO) President Servet Şahin: We would like to thank the Minister of Transport, l Karaismailoğlu. He is doing very successful things. If there is the Samsun-Sarp Railway, this line connects to the Silk Road to China. In that respect, it is a very important project. A project that will make a significant contribution to the region. The cost is not as exaggerated. You maintain the railway every 10 years and you maintain the highway every 6 months. As soon as possible, we are waiting for the project tender of Samsun Sarp line.
THE PROJECT OF 100 YEARS FOR THE BLACK SEA
Giresun Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GTSO) Hasan Çakırmelikoğlu: Minister of Transport Karaismailoğlu really gave us very good news. We greeted with joy and happiness. We are now in the age of communication and transportation. Samsun-Sarp is an investment in place and time. A must-have investment. An investment that will change the fortunes of the region. The highways of the region can no longer pull the load. Samsun-Sarp Railway Line is the biggest project of this region. It is a 100-year project for the Black Sea Region.
THE BLACK SEA SHOULD BE CONNECTED TO THE WORLD
Rize Chamber of Commerce and Industry (RITSO) President Şaban Aziz Karamehmetoğlu: The statement of the Minister of Transport Karaismailoğlu made us happy and excited. Thank you. I personally told this line to President Erdogan. This should now be included in the schedule, project tender should be made. If a railway will come to the Black Sea, the route should be Samsun-Sarp. When you connect this to Batumi, then Azerbaijan and then China, you connect to a world of 2,5 billion.
PROJECT TENDER SHOULD BE MADE A MOMENT BEFORE
Seçkin Kurt, President of Artvin Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ATSO): The Samsun-Sarp Railway statement by the Minister of Transport, Adil Karaismailoğlu, made us happy. We read the news breathlessly with excitement. Thank you very much to our minister. Samsun-Sarp Railway will be very good for the Eastern Black Sea Region. Trade, tourism, transportation and everything will gain momentum. We also expect the Samsun-Sarp Line to be brought to the region by making the project tender as soon as possible from our minister and our President.
