“We couldn't find what we hoped for in maritime”

TOBB Maritime Assembly President Erol Yücel: We have not seen the issues that we wish to see in the maritime sector as a maritime sector. However, it is important to consider such a planning and we think that it will be useful to revise this study as soon as possible. Priority for the maritime sector is a serious planning. First of all, we have to change the perspective of the maritime sector. The Turkish shipowner only employs a portion of the 31 million DWT of the 8 million DWT under the Turkish flag. The reasons for this should be laid down. . Our shipyards should be supported more, as is the case in competing countries. The action plan includes part of the ports. However, cruise ships should be considered under a separate title. Nowadays, one of the most important issues is to prepare emergency application plans for rescue and assistance services for these ships with passengers and crew. Düşün Galataport iyer project which is considered for cruise ships in Istanbul should be considered as temporary. It is not possible for this pier to meet its needs. In the long-term, a port of Yenikapı - Ataköy should be built in the harbor and passenger lounges.
