President Erdoğan: We want to be a producer of new technologies

Speaking at the TEKNOFEST ISTANBUL Aerospace and Technology Festival, President Erdoğan said: "We want to be a producer of new technologies ─ not a market for them ─ in this period of technological transformation.

"To that end, we will, Inshaallah, further strengthen our global competitive advantage, in particular with value-added production, consolidate our economic and technological independence, and make a leap forward in critical technologies," said Turkish president during his speech.

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan visited the TEKNOFEST ISTANBUL Aerospace and Technology Festival, organized by the Turkish Technology Team Foundation (T3) at Istanbul Atatürk Airport.

Addressing citizens at the festival venue, President Erdoğan said: "We want to be a producer of new technologies ─ not a market for them ─ in this period of technological transformation.
