“Since 1999 the Unemployment Insurance Fund, which has been successfully implemented, stands before us as an example of good practice. During the pandemic period as employers, we have experienced the importance of this fund. Also for the Earthquake Fund a similar model can be constructed. The source to be collected in the fund with the legal assurance that it will not be used for any other purpose, it can be professionally managed and remunerated. Economic destruction caused by earthquakes, the effects of which last for decades, constitutes the most important risk factor on our country's economy. Not just residences our factories and production facilities with both its structural features and emergency plans must be prepared for earthquakes.”

“Similar warnings have been made by our scientists for Istanbul many times. Our government, our local governments taking the threat with the utmost seriousness, by transferring resources, our cities need to increase their earthquake preparedness levels. zoning plans, it is of vital importance that urban settlements are built by considering the earthquake reality. In order for our country not to experience these pains again, we must continue our preparation processes and we need to raise our level to the highest level.”
