Turkey has a 12,000-kilometer high-speed railway project to be realized and two nuclear plant projects in the next 6-7 years.

Mr. Elvan also addressed businessmen working in the construction and contracting fields: ” It is important that you are slowly turning to production areas especially having back and forth connection with construction field”.
