We will strengthen further in every way. So that we will increase the intervention power against these events," Erdogan said. Erdogan also said they would be inquiring into who was behind the Gezi protests, arguing that it was all a massive conspiracy, prepared very professionally in collaboration with social media, companies, the interest rate lobby, media and some internal traitors and external collaborators. Erdogan also gave information about the 10th Development Plan. "Within the framework of our 10th Development Plan, we aim the economy to grow by 5.5 percent. As a result, our national income will climb to $1.3 trillion. We also aim to increase per capita income to $16,000 by 2018," Erdogan noted.
