The country has been very successful in the sectors that require more industrial labor. However, for the growth of the economy, we need to refocus on higher value-added sectors. In this regard, there have been major developments in the machinery sector in Turkey.
We are the leader in working with the government to develop Turkey's overall machinery strategy. Comparing our work to our budget, our program has been very effective because we made a significant impact with a relatively small amount of funding.
If developing countries are not capable of producing their own machines, their ability to compete at an international level is lowered. Turkey has a current account deficit problem, and the ability to produce our own machinery can help mitigate that.
