3) In short, what does production mean for you and our country? What are your problems and expectations from the public?
Ten years ago, our country was very insufficient and highly dependent on foreign sources for the production of medical devices, instruments and consumables, and almost all of the medical devices, most of the instruments and consumables were imported. We had local companies that produced these tools. However, most of them were not in a position to compete with foreign big companies. We have seen during the pandemic process that our country has surpassed many countries in the medical device sector. The fact that our country has a young, crowded and dynamic population that is prone to information technology and willing to use it, the medical device sector is a sector with high added value, the communication infrastructure in our country is at a modern level, there are universities with high education quality, and high-tech medical devices, tools and materials are produced in our country. The existence of companies has proven that production is a great value for our country.
The balance of power of a country is based on production, consumption and efficiency, but the most important thing for our country is to export. If we bring foreign currency to our country by exporting, we will make the biggest contribution economically. The more efficient the production, the more solid the foundation of the economy will be. The fact that production is domestic and sustainable, on the other hand, increases the welfare level of the country by reducing foreign dependency in agriculture, trade, industry and energy. In this context, supporting domestic production and empowering the economy means a growing and productive Turkey.
