Retailers demand prompt enactment

Also expressing opinion on the subject, TPF Chairman Selamet Aygün also noted that the law should be enacted promptly, and if otherwise, the growth of the sector would be affected negatively. Aygün spoke as follows: “This law will especially ensure the preparation of strategic plans, the assessment of retail points according to the needs of the regions, the starting up of businesses according to needs. For qualified staff, the jobs and working hours should be regulated. A significant step will be taken if Sunday is accepted as holiday”.
