Mr. ŞENOL points out that the automotive industry in Turkey bright future, and it is important to take timely action and the rşght steps. "We believe that these steps have already been taken.

We are all in for tough times in the future due to their rapidly developing technologies and increasing accumulation of knowledge with the companies they are buying. If we wish to compete with China, we must create the necessary circumstances to do so. With the collaboration of our government, we must search for ways to revive the Turkish Automotive Industry by owning the electrical vehicle and lead the way to implement new technologies by accelerating R&D investments.we think the biggest problem is the lack of qualified employees. For this reason; for the next 2 years we will spare more time on training and effort to strengthen our human resources by taking professional assistance. We believe that every company that wishes to be successful must invest in their human resources and increase the hours of annual training per person."
