Turkey's newly appointed Minister of Energy and Natural Resources Fatih Donmez takes over his new post from Berat Albayrak with a handover ceremony on Tuesday.
Speaking at the ceremony, Donmez said the ministry continue its works with renovated institutions as part of the new Presidential System.
"In the new system, there will be less institutions, less managers therefore there will be faster and high performance government," Donmez said.
"We will continue our way with these new institutions. We learnt a lot from our minister [Albayrak]. We are thankful to him for building up the most powerful and dynamic period in the history of the Energy and Natural Resources Ministry," he noted.
New Treasury and Finance Minister Berat Albayrak also said that Turkey put forward a very important roadmap for energy sector in the last 2,5 years.
"We created a system which is independent from any individuals. Many energy projects for 2023 are well prepared," Albayrak said.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has unveiled the new 16-minister Cabinet in the presidential complex in the capital Ankara, the first-ever Cabinet under the new presidential system, which became a reality on Monday.
Fatih Donmez became Turkey's new Minister of Energy and Natural Resources as part of the first cabinet, while former Energy and Natural Resources Minister Albayrak became new Treasury and Finance Minister.
Born in the western Bilecik province in 1965, Fatih Donmez served as undersecretariat at the Energy and Natural Resources Ministry since December 2015 before his current promotion to energy and natural resources minister.
