Samsun-Ordu highway is the main connection road in the east-west direction and at the same time is the main road connecting Samsun to Ankara.

All the resources of Turkey are produced in the Marmara Basin, where all economic activity is rising. If such a synergy does not arise somewhere, the speed of development and development is slow. We live in a region with great wealth in terms of regional advantages. But we cannot be a city that will contribute to the national economy as a whole, and produce great economic and added value. Therefore, we have difficulties. If we neglect and do not omit, we can have an opportunity similar to the Marmara, Aegean and Mediterranean basins if we attract and reinforce some investments to Samsun. The Logistics Village will also be a great opportunity. Besides Turkey, Marmara, Aegean, Mediterranean, to fit in the Iskenderun Basin is targeting a large extent the economy. The Black Sea Basin will inevitably be included in the scope of this economy. There will definitely be facilities based on production in this basin. Samsun is also becoming a city ready for this with its logistics and other advantages ”.
