Turkey Chambers and Commodity Exchanges (TOBB) organized by the Konya, Karaman and Aksaray joint board of problems and demands of educational institutions and the media sector in meeting ACCI Board Treasurer was forwarded to President Rifat Hisarcıklıoğlu by Ahmed Pektas.
AKSARAY (İGFA) – Aksaray Chamber of Commerce and Industry Treasurer Ahmet Pektaş, who spoke at the meeting, reminded that until 2019, the state provided support to private schools and students at the level of 4 thousand TL for students who can benefit from the incentives.
Explaining that the demand for private schools decreased after the support that ended in the same year, Pektaş said, “Private schools were also seriously affected negatively during the pandemic period. We demand the revitalization of a new incentive for students studying at private schools. We want the VAT rate, which is applied as 1 percent in education and training services from 1 September 2020 to 30 June 2021, to be extended until the end of the year or to work on it to be permanent. Emphasizing that security and private education courses cannot benefit from support, Ahmet Pektaş said that they want to provide credit support or grants for institutions in this situation.
Explaining his expectations about the press sector, Pektaş said, “There is no protective law or regulation that will include the rights of press members. We are considered in the same status as a normal person in law when the incident is in question in any question. There were too many physical attacks on local press members. When a member of the press physically attacked complains about the other party, no action can be taken, since there is no law protecting the press members. In this sense, we demand the enactment of a protective law or regulation in which we will also have our rights. ”
Reminding that the state achieved a significant increase in the minimum wage in 2021, Ahmet Pektaş said,“ One of the biggest livelihoods of the press, official announcement fees are significant. there was no increase. An increase in official advertisements is demanded by the press community.
As it is known, the official announcement is only applied in print media. It should not be forgotten that it is a press organization in radios, which has been one of the indispensable communication channels since 1927. At this point, our last request from you will be based on work to make use of official advertisements on radios ”.
