The titles of President Erdogan’s statements are as follows:
“Turkey is one of the few countries that can truly exercise its sovereign rights in its region. Sometimes someone asks, “What have you done in 19 years? they dare to say. The best answer we can give to such accusations is to say what we have done in 19 years. We succeeded in turning the current account deficit into a surplus in 2019, and we will see the same picture again soon.
“ OUR CENTRAL BANK RESERVES ARE AT THE LEVEL OF $ 109 BILLION ”
We have reduced Turkey’s average annual growth rate below 1% and brought it down to 5.1%. Our central bank reserves are currently at the level of 109 billion dollars. With the transactions completed, it will exceed $ 115 billion in the coming days.
“WE WILL INCREASE OUR NATIONAL REVENUE TO MORE THAN $ BILLION ASAP”
We will increase our national income, which has declined a bit due to the events we have experienced, including the fluctuation of the exchange rate, to over $ 1 trillion as soon as possible.
“WE HAVE INCREASED OUR NUMBER OF AIRPORTS FROM 26 TO 56”
In the area of education, we took the number of classrooms from 343,000 and increased it to over 620,000.

The production process of our domestic automobile is proceeding as planned. Hopefully we’ll see our own car on the roads in 2023.
“ THE MINIMUM OFFICER’S SALARY HAS INCREASED TO 5 THOUSAND 700 LIRA ”

Preschool and classroom teachers benefited from 2 extra hours of extra lessons per week. The average salary increase for civil servants for the years 2022-2023 was 31.2% and the amount was 1,352 lire. We have kept our promise not to keep our officials inflation down after our officials.
“FROM THE ASHES WE WILL SEE OUR FORESTS”
It is a fact that we are facing a general global catastrophe. We are determined to erase the traces of unprecedented fires. By Allah’s permission this state is strong, this nation is strong and we will achieve it. We will see our forests rise from their ashes. Yesterday we appointed our friends to work in the East, West Black Sea and South with a large delegation. We as a state have supported the people since the beginning of the disasters.
“WE MUST BE ALL FIELDS”
We have to work day and night until June 2023. We have to be in all areas. We are going to Ahlat tomorrow. Manzikert, here we are. We have taken a big place in Ahlat as a state, and we are bringing it to our state. As Alparslan sets out, we will hold our ceremonies in Ahlat with Devlet Bey. After our return from Manzikert, we will continue our programs from the Eastern Black Sea region. Then we will visit Kastamonu, Sinop and Bartın, then we will go to Muğla and Antalya. There are houses that are symbolically finished, maybe we will open those houses.
