I hope it will serve the world that goes beyond Bursa. We need to invest 50m euros in such a project, but our 60-year resources in the machinery industry have helped us to solve this job with 20m euros. Today, we have brought this tram effort to such a beautiful place that the company Alstom decided to make us the hulls of the high-speed trains they made to Italy and we started exporting to Alstom from the 7th of April. The foreigners also have such trust in us that they even have their main body built for us. ”

I wish that our other cities will come and have more confidence indices for domestic vehicles ”.
