With the Cabotage Law that came into force on July 1st, 1926, Turkish the state became dominant in the sea transportation 90% of which was in the hands of foreigners during the Ottoman Empire. In fact, the basis of this idea was laid at the Izmir Economic Congress on February 17th, 1923, before the proclamation of the Republic with the understanding of "national economy". On July 1st, 1926, piers and ports were expropriated and nationalized. The symbol of our right to cabotage, happy great fest of our seafaring!
