"Mayoralty can be learned within the first 5-10 years. You are not born as a mayor. It hasn’t a school too.  There are huge differences in my thoughts which is 20 years ago and  now.  when i consider past years, we were finishing an overpass in two years. Now , we can construct the overpasses between 35 days and 3 months, it depends on its size. We have tried asphalt for years but i have just found my kind of it for 3-4 years. These are  always been through experimentation and testing. The pavements are the same. So everything is experience. I hope we are ready to make all kinds of cooperation. "
