President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan inaugurated the Nation's Library on February 20 in Ankara. “The library is already enriched with books from inside our country and from abroad in 134 different languages and 4 million printed works from a wide range of disciplines. It has reached a quite important milestone with 550 thousand e-books as well as 120 million articles and reports," he said.
President Erdoğan also inaugurated the second phase of Istanbul Technopark on February 16. “Turkey's future lies in technology and innovation," Erdoğan said at the ceremony. “We have proven ourselves in the defense industry; now, it is the turn of other realms of production. This, I believe, we will achieve through a well-informed strategy."
Erdoğan also spoke at the opening ceremony of the Menemen-Aliağa-Çandarlı Highway on February 22 in Izmir. “Turkey has the power and capability to pursue independent policies and implement them on the ground," Erdoğan said.
