According to the "bag proposal" submitted by the AKP to the Parliament, the Qatari company QTerminals, which took over the Antalya Port for 140 million dollars, obtained the right to operate the port until 2047 with varying obligations.

According to the "bag proposal" submitted to the Assembly, the contract periods of the privatized Turkey Denizcilik İşletmeleri (TDİ) AŞ and TCDD's ports, which were 30, 36 and 39 years, will be completed to 49 years.

Companies that buy the ports will withdraw their lawsuits against the Privatization Administration, TDI and TCDD. In addition, additional contracts will be signed with companies. However, no new tender will be made. In the determination of the additional contract price, at least two institutions authorized to make valuation according to the Capital Market Law will be appointed as consultants.

In this context, there are 18 ports in total in Tekirdağ, Hopa, Giresun, Ordu, Sinop, Rize, Antalya, Marmaris, Alanya, Çeşme, Kuşadası, Trabzon, Dikili, Mersin, İskenderun, Derince, Samsun and Bandırma. Among these ports, the Qatari QTerminals company took over the Antalya Port for 140 million dollars. The port would be operated by the Qatari company until 2028. Now, with the law, this period will be extended for another 19 years. Thus, the company will be able to operate this port until 2047.

Properties and facilities will be transferred to TEİAŞ or TEDAŞ free of charge.
