Referring to the problems in the sector, Korkmaz continued his words as follows: “Although there has been a law that will regulate the railway sector and pave the way for liberalization, which has been expected for nearly four years, none of the regulations to be made have yet been realized. This delay and uncertainty caused Investment projects to be shelved. The regulations and changes made by TCDD in the price and transportation tariffs at the beginning of the year caused a 35 percent decrease in railway transportation. the eighth world's crude steel producing country Turkey is a country dependent on imports in terms of raw materials. The sector is a net importer in almost all inputs, from scrap to ore, from coal to ferrous metals. In this context, the problems experienced in the sales markets directly reflect on the sector. In parallel with the intensifying global competition, countries are increasing their measures to protect their own sectors. USA, Canada, Australia, Jordan, Morocco, Thailand and Turkey originating in Egypt is one example of this additional customs and anti-dumping duties imposed on certain products. We think that market losses will increase in this framework in the coming period. Korkmaz stated that 2015 was a very difficult year given the current economic and political structure; 'In the same direction, we think that 2016 will be even more difficult. "Both domestic political uncertainties and geopolitical problems in the region and economic problems in the world prevent us from making optimistic predictions for the next year."
