Happy Cabotage Day

Dr. Akkan Suver, President of the Marmara Group Foundation, published a message on the occasion of the July 1st Cabotage Day: “The Cabotage Day is the Turkish domination of the seas”

Dr. Akkan Suver's message regarding the July 1st Cabotage Day is exactly as follows: "-Cabotage, which is the registration of our domination of our seas are the announcement of the ship management business between our country's wharves or ports and our sovereignty in doing this business to the world. 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!
