3 of Istanbul. Turkish marbles to the airport
The Turkish marble exporters of the John F. Kennedy Airport in New York, USA, one of the largest airports in the world, with an annual capacity of 47 million passengers, aspire to cover the third airport to be built in Istanbul with Turkish marbles.
Reminding that Istanbul's 22rd airport, for which Limak-Cengiz-Mapa-Kalyon OGG won the tender with 152 billion 3 million Euros of rent plus VAT, will be the largest airport in the world in terms of passenger capacity when completed, Arslan Erdinç, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Aegean Mining Exporters Union We want to cover the places and walls of the 3rd airport with Turkish marbles. In this respect, we believe that in line with the Prime Minister's circular on the use of domestic goods at the airport to be built, Turkish marbles will be preferred.
Reminding that they covered the New York F. Kennedy Airport, which is one of the largest airports in the world, with Turkish marbles, Erdinç said, “America uses Turkish marbles at the airports in its embassies and will continue to use them. Again, Turkish marbles are used in many airports and palaces where Colombia is at Bogota Airport. We want Turkish marbles, whose reputation has spread abroad, to be used at the airports in our country. However, imported granites are used in most of the airports in our country. Italian Calacatta marbles, which doubled Turkish marble by 10-20 in terms of price, were laid in the Istanbul Domestic Terminal VIP Hall, moreover, it was rusted when I last saw it. Spanish marbles and Indian granites were used in the Turkish Embassy in Astana, Kazakhstan. We are a country with the richest marble deposits in the world. We want our marbles, which are used and popular all over the world, to be used in our country. "Countries like Spain, Italy and Portugal use their natural stones in all public constructions."
We'll send 3 sculpture to New York airport
Reminding that they will leave 3 permanent works at the New York airport, Erdinç said, “The statue of Turkish scholar Hazerfan Ahmed Çelebi, who managed to fly for the first time in the world, and 3 sculptures, again reflecting the Turkish culture and reflecting the Greek and Seljuk period, will be made in Izmir in May with a cocktail. We will send it to York airport as permanent work, ”he said.
In the export of natural stone, India may be the second Chinese
Arslan Erdinç pointed out that China and the USA share the first places in Turkish natural stone exports, but India is also a rising market for the Turkish natural stone industry. Reminding that the Aegean Exporters Union will make the national participation in ET ACETECH Fair to be held in Mumbai, which is considered the biggest trade center of India, Erdinç continued his words as follows: “To be held in October, the most important Marble production center of India, Silvassa We, as the Aegean Exporters Association, will organize the Turkish national participation organization of the natural stone part of ET ACETECH, the world's third and Asia's largest construction fair, within hours. Considering that India will join the world free trade regime in 2014, we foresee a lot of marble exports to India after 2014, when quotas will be lifted. Therefore, the importance of the Indian market should not be overlooked. India could be the second China for the Turkish natural stone industry.
