….We need two things to trade. One is to provide space for the products to be exported. Without this, there is no trade. We need to have serial and sure means to send them out. Therefore, we are obliged to make automobiles, buses and train routes as soon as possible with all our strengths. Secondly, the second job we will consider in trade is to save the trade from the hands of foreign traders, who see the duty of export and import as intermediary (20.03.1923, Konya Conversation with Tradesmen and Merchants).
