Turkish President Erdogan unveils 100-day action plan

ANKARA (Rahnuma) President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Friday unveiled first 100-day action plan of Turkey’s new presidential Cabinet in the capital Ankara.

“Today, we share our first 100-day action plan with you,” Erdogan said at the presentation meeting at the presidential complex.

Erdogan said they are planning to announce Medium-Term Program by the end of August.

“We have started working on a strategic plan for 2019-2023 and aim to complete this by the end of November,” he said.

The president said over 1,000 projects will be completed within 100 days but announced most important are 400 in the program.

Erdogan noted that 48 out of 400 projects are related to defense industry and said Turkey has no second thoughts on defense industry projects.

Speaking about judicial system in the country, he said: “We have come a long way in recovering from the destruction that FETO [Fetullah Terrorist Organization] caused to our judicial system”.

The FETO and its U.S.-based leader Fetullah Gulen orchestrated the defeated coup attempt of July 15, 2016, which left 251 people martyred and nearly 2,200 injured.

Ankara also accuses FETO of carrying out a long-running campaign to overthrow the Turkish state through the infiltration of state institutions.

Erdogan said within the scope of action plan, the environmental impact assessment and survey project works of Canal Istanbul will be submitted for approval.

The Canal Istanbul Project, an artificial sea-level waterway that will connect the Black Sea to the Sea of Marmara and the Mediterranean, is planned to be completed by 2023.
