The old generation who witnessed the past of Istanbul knows what we will say, and knows Istanbul was the “injustice between the beauty of the city and the painful reality” that it was living in.
Istanbul in 16 years .. the biggest change in history
Istanbul, how was it 16 years ago? How did you become today?
Istanbul city has not witnessed this typical development for more than
16 years, as it was nicknamed the “Garbage City”,
Istanbul, which is currently classified as one of the most developed cities
in the world, was plagued by many problems, as it was difficult for anyone to solve these problems.
What are the problems were happening in Istanbul?
The city was suffering from a lack of water resources, as the water did not reach all areas of Istanbul.
Istanbul had problems with the electricity, as it was cut off during long periods of the day.
Turkey in general suffers from unemployment problems,
economic and political instability,and many other problems that were thrown off the wall.
It was slowly moving away from the dream of implementing Turkey’s 2023 vision.
Where the real estate market was a poor sector , and
tourism in the country was meager , providing only limited income to the Turkish treasury .
Turkey did not allocate huge amounts of money to the
educational sector, and it was suffering from high rates of poverty.
Istanbul suffered most from the problem of garbage,
Many still remember those fetid smells that were emitted
from the garbage disposal areas, which filled Istanbul with them.
At the same time, it was suffering from problems in the poor
transportation network, and problems of movement between the Asian and European parts of the city.
The biggest change in history!
Then the miracle happened. Several reforms have started at all
levels since 1994, since Recep Tayyip Erdogan assumed the position of mayor of the city of Istanbul.
During his reign, Turkey had a model plan to benefit from all the
city’s resources, which is considered one of the richest cities in the world in terms of natural resources.
So he started solving the problem of garbage by recycling it, thus
getting rid of polluting emissions, without problems in the environment.
Then dams were built to solve the water problem, so all Turkish
houses became equipped with specialized supplies that water reached without problems.
He also found a solution to the gas and electricity problem, as there
is currently no house in Istanbul that suffers from a lack of gas or a power outage.
And the foundations of a transportation and communication network,
while preparing the city’s infrastructure in an engineering way.
Without affecting the environment either.
He allocated a huge budget for education, He was also interested in
the real estate market in Turkey, as he encouraged foreign and Arab
investors to invest in the real estate sector by enacting some laws and facilities for the foreign investor.
The real estate market revived, which in turn revived the tourism market in Turkey.
Tourists flocked from all over the world, spending beautiful and happy times
in the modern city of Istanbul.
He was interested in the export sector from Turkey, as he encouraged the industry
by canceling many taxes, and easing other taxes.
Even Turkish products have reached all parts of the world.
Thanks to these unique achievements, Turkey jumped from the 41st place in
the world as an economic power, to the 13th place.
