Critical work is continuing to nationalize Turkey’s information infrastructure in a bid to keep online data within the country to enhance further data security, Transportation, Maritime Affairs and Communication Minister Ahmet Arslan has said on Jan 16.
Arslan said they prioritized the establishment of data centers in Turkey and were cooperating with the related Communication General Directorate on the issue. Underlining that they had accelerated works to extend national infrastructure in information technologies, Arslan said they were providing R&D initiatives for national software and hardware systems. A decree law on incentives for data centers to be built in Turkey by the private sector went into force on Nov. 22, 2016, when it was published in the Official Gazette.
