Minister Varank attended the 'Consultation Meeting with Industrialists and Business People' held at Kahramanmaraş Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KMTSO). Varank started his speech at the meeting by wishing God's mercy to Muhsin Yazıcıoğlu, the Founding Chairman of the Great Unity Party (BBP), who lost his life as a result of the helicopter crash in Kahramanmaraş 13 years ago, and the 5 people accompanying him. Stating that he observed what the industrialists of Kahramanmaraş can do with the contacts he made throughout the day in the city and he was very satisfied, Varank said that he was very pleased with the employment and technological infrastructure in the companies.
HE LISTED TO THE REQUESTS
Referring to the demands of the industrialists, Varank said, “All of them are without exception, 'Mr. Minister, we want to invest. We want to increase our investments, produce more, earn more, and bring more to our country," they said. As a Minister of Industry and Technology, there can be no happier time. We are really going through a period where people are voicing some bureaucratic issues where they only need space when investing.” said.
Emphasizing that the Turkish industrialists are conscious enough to compete with all their competitors in the Far East, north and south, Varank said, “I remind our industrialists again. Even one square meter of the roof should not be empty during this period. The lands that are not suitable for agriculture should not remain empty during this period, and the investments we have made here are now returning to you in two years and provide you with very serious advantages in competitiveness. In particular, we need to use the circular economy much better. We need to pay attention to our investments in this direction.” he said.
Varank, pointing out that what is done in the field of industrial production is important, but this situation should be looked at in an integrated way, "We made the investments in every field by making the infrastructures that Turkey needs. If we had not made these infrastructure investments in Turkey, if we had not increased Turkey's installed power capacity to 100 thousand megawatts, if we had not equipped Turkey with these highways, roads, bridges and tunnels, the industrialist who produces honey in Kahramanmaraş would not have the chance to produce those goods primarily because there is no energy. it wouldn't. There would be no opportunity to carry and sell those goods. Therefore, we actually started a development move in Turkey by investing in all areas.” he said.
WE WILL SIGN SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS
Explaining that they are trying to bring services to the country and make investments, Varank said, “Thanks to the infrastructures we provide, the Turkish economy has the capabilities to continue on its way. Here, the Turkish industrialist actually showed the whole world how he had a flexible production structure during the pandemic period. While the companies in China did not even answer their phones for 3 months, 4 months, my industrialist completed all his orders and export orders on time and delivered them to their places. On top of this solid infrastructure, I hope we will make much more successful work in the coming period by making much more effort.” used the phrases.
