Competition for Infrastructure Among Regions in Turkey
Türkiye’de Bölgelerarası Altyapı Rekabeti

Mehmet Güney Celbiş [1] , Denis de Crombrugghe [2] , Joan Muysken [3]


There has been a surge in infrastructure enhancements in Turkey during the 2000s, particularly in the area of transportation and communication. This has provided valuable testing grounds of economic theories from a regional economics perspective. Empirically, the positive effect of infrastructure enhancements on trade and economic growth alongside numerous development-related outcomes is highly established in the literature. Our research aims to shed light, through econometric methods, on how the socioeconomic attributes of regional economies play a role in the allocation of the investments in transportation and communication. We observe that regional competition is an important effect among other factors.
Ulaştırma ve haberleşme alanı başta olmak üzere, 2000’li yıllarda Türkiye’de altyapı geliştirilmesinde büyük bir artış yaşanmıştır. Bu durum bölgesel iktisadi bir perspektiften bakıldığında ekonomik teorilerin test edilebilmesi için çok değerli bir zemin yaratmıştır. Kalkınma ile ilgili birçok başka faktörün yanısıra, altyapı gelişiminin ticaret ve ekonomik büyümeye olan pozitif etkisi ampirik olarak literatürde kuvvetli şekilde temellendirilmiştir. Bu çalışmamızın amacı, ekonometrik yöntemler aracılığıyla bölgesel ekonomilerin sosyoekonomik özelliklerinin ulaştırma ve haberleşme kamu yatırımlarının tahsisindeki yeri konusunda aydınlatıcı bulgular edinmektir. Çalışmamızda başka faktörler ile birlikte bölgesel rekabetin önemli bir etki unsuru olduğunu gözlemlemekteyiz.
