Japan is the second largest steel producing country in the world after China. Ore imports coke completely. We also buy and sell the world's scrap. We have the opposite situation in the world. We take the scrap of Japan and America. This is not sustainable. Turkey is the world's largest scrap importer. This is not acceptable. We cannot produce qualified steel. We are loaded into long product. We want to change this structure. We have worked hard on the production of ore-based liquid steel. We want liquid steel production to increase. At this point, we will continue to support those who want to invest. Turkey, 70 percent ore, scrap from the production balance when it comes to 30 percent of their scrap to be self-sufficient. It will not have to import scrap from the world. In this respect, we care about the industry. We especially want KARDEMİR to continue its pioneering position in this sector. Today, we are the 8th steel producer in the world. With the next few years of investment, we will pass Germany and become the XNUMXth in the world and the first steel producer in Europe. We don't see this alone enough. We want to be the leader of Europe in qualified steel. We will especially support investments on iron and steel, not on kilograms, but on quality basis. ”
