Kalkan and swallows, even tuna swim. Our seas are very fertile, and our fishermen are very skilled, mashallah. While protecting our assets in the seas, we also support our fishing industry with all our strength.” said.
“The energy crisis has reached a dimension that no one could have imagined”
Referring to the demands of the fishermen, Kirişci said: “I know that it is our fuel expenses that hurt us the most in terms of production. The application about fuel, which started in our period, may not satisfy you, but let’s not forget that the world went through a great disaster. First the pandemic and then the Russia-Ukraine War. The energy crisis has reached an extent that no one could have imagined, and accordingly the food crisis made headlines. As countries of the world, we need to be very careful. We have not yet received the evaluations of our President, but I can honestly say that; With the instructions of our esteemed President, who has always been by your side, our Ziraat Bank will extend a business loan to our fishermen at the current policy rate of 13.5 percent. It will start from today.”
