Turkey’s rapidly expanding economy, political and economic stability, and the possibility of EU membership have created unprecedented levels of growth.
Consequently, significant demands for specific areas of technology and expertise have been created as they work to fulfil their requirements and obligations as both EU members.
If Turkish companies are to remain competitive and address the requirements locally, individual industry sectors need to upgrade in key areas to allow them achieve the necessary productivity and technical standards.
The implementation of the Action Programme to Enhance the Competitiveness of Turkish Industry next year is intended to provide local industry with access to the solutions it needs to meet the new demands over the next 15 years.
In the National Programme for the Preparation for Membership of the European Union, the Turkish government state that the survival and growth potential of Turkish industry lies in the modernisation of manufacturing processes and management skills, and by engaging industry more strongly in international co-operation and trade.
