X Mr. Minister, today is your Ministry's 10. year. I would like to thank 10 for your contribution and contribution to the service of our nation. I wish you many years of convenience and successful.
The first issue that I would like to mention Mr. Minister is Call Centers. The Information and Technologies and Communication Authority supervises only the operators in the IT sector. In particular, waiting times, charges, and competition conditions are audited. However, the call service companies that belong to the number of suspicious numbers by calling citizens and marketing is done. In particular, an arrangement should be made about I unwanted CALs ”such as malı unwanted SMS Özellikle. This service should provide service from known lines such as 444. In addition, call centers should be audited by expanding the audit authority of the Information and Communication Technologies Authority.
Second, I would like to present some of the issues contained in the report Kalkınma Local Dynamics in the Regional Development: Çorum Model and 2012 Scenarios li of TÜRKONFED dated August 2023 prepared in Çorum on the Çorum province in relation to our railway demand. This report has been prepared by SWOT Analysis method and in the report, some of the strengths of Çorum province are stated as follows: The presence of the companies manufacturing and exporting, the presence of branded products and the existence of a considerable accumulation in the machinery manufacturing. Among the opportunities, the most important feature was “Ease of Access to Russian Market through Samsun olarak and the weakness of Fırsat No Rail Link Fırsat was mentioned.
Mr. Minister, Corum province's export growth rate of the manufacturing sector in particular, because it is above the average export growth rate of Turkey's "new industry focus" is defined. This definition is used to describe the regions that develop based on internal factors such as equity, local entrepreneurial characteristics, flexible production characteristics and relationships, solidarity, trust and organizational capacity. Corum, the savings and entrepreneurial power
by organizing, it has reached a ites specific industrial capacity örgüt. The only obstacle to the development of Çorum's industry is the railway. The most urgent infrastructure support for the development of Çorum industry will be provided by railway. Because numbers support this. Corum-based traffic Turkey Traffic Volume According to the map data is as follows. 2011 units in 4.061.355 during Çorum-Ankara route, 2.030.860 units in Çorum-Samsun line and 985.135 units in Çorum-Amasya line have been recorded. Half of this is for freight and passenger transport. 11.500 vehicles on the daily average Ankara line and 5.650 vehicle movement on the Samsun line. In addition, according to the data of Çorum Chamber of Commerce and Industry 2011, the yearly shipment of 15 Million Ton is transferred to domestic markets and to ports for export purposes.
When the population is taken as the second criterion after the vehicle traffic, the situation is as follows: The total population of Çorum-Amasya-Samsun-Ordu provinces is 2.8 million. When we consider the province of Samsun just like Eskişehir, the population of Giresun-Trabzon-Rize in the new Black Sea coastal corridor will be a railroad that will serve a population and passenger transportation.
Mr. Minister, I will present the file containing the load amounts, population statistics and TURKONFED report of our province to be evaluated for the tender project as soon as possible.
