Madrid Example 5!

819

When I first visited Madrid, I was very impressed when they told me the story of Barajas Airport that was opened at that time.

Spain National Airport Authority (AENA) puts forth an unchanging condition while putting Madrid Barajas Airport Terminal 4 Construction for bidding. The beige stones extracted from Barajas Region in Spain must be used. The project was drawn in this way. Two grand Spanish firms took the orders. Tiles were cut in 6 cm thickness on the floor to increase durability. Made in Spain stones over 1 million sqm was applied on the Spain’s biggest airport.

This is patriotism. This means loving the nation’s stone, soil and respecting stone producers.

Extra building was added to Istanbul Ataturk Airport. I gave this example when they ordered granite from China.

They ordered granite from China to Izmir Adnan Menderes Airport, and I showed this example again…

They removed Burdur Beige from Istanbul Sabiha Gokcen Airport project and ordered granite from India, I repeated this example.

Now they are constructing Istanbul 3rd Airport, they ordered from Brazil, and I wanted to give the same example.

You can’t be patriot by converting dollar in your pocket to save the value of Turkish Lira…

Turkey produces hundreds of stone types from beige to black, onyx to travertine…

Turkey is one of the top 5 countries in natural stone export in the world…

Turkey sells natural stone from America to China, from Russia to Dubai, but you import stone for this country’s most prestigious project. This means stabbing the nation. It is such a ironical situation as if S. Arabia importing petrol from you!

Despite this….

Turkish natural stone sector uses the most expensive energy and petrol in the world but still displsys the effort to stand against its rivals…

Turkish natural stone sector still makes investment for high quality production despite all kinds of problems…

Turkish natural stone sector still strives to exceed 2 billion dollars in export despite all these obstacles it encounters…

You must cordially congratulate these crazy Turks stabbed in behind.
