120 MILLION DOLLAR IMPORT WILL PREVENT IMPORT: Today, we are performing another first. A new breath comes to the chemical industry. Polyurethane Reactive Hotmelt Adhesive Products and their different derivatives, which we have always imported, will be produced in our country for the first time. Thus, an important input of the packaging, automotive, furniture, construction, defense and aviation industries will be provided domestically. In the medium term, an import of 120 million dollars will be prevented.
2.1 BILLION TL INVESTMENT: Another visionary policy we put into practice during this period was the Technology Oriented Industry Move Program. With this program we launched last year, we aim to localize and add value-added production in critical sectors, both to improve domestic capabilities and to increase our competitive power in global markets. We made the first call in the machinery industry. We have determined 22 projects with high added value, and an investment of 2.1 billion lira is envisaged for these projects.
SMART DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES: Perhaps the only plus of the pandemic was that we realized how quickly we could adapt to digitization. In the new period, we will witness the penetration of smart digital technologies more intensely in all areas of life. Of course, the manufacturing industry is not independent from this. Companies that use digital technologies in the best way will begin to outstrip their competitors.
MORE SIGNIFICANT HISTORY: Based on this, we launched a call for “Digitalization in Manufacturing Industry” last year through KOSGEB to improve the digital capabilities of our SMEs. The program received a request far beyond our expectations. Within the scope of the call, we provided 258 SMEs with 72 million pounds of digitalization support. Our SMEs continue their projects that they started with this support. This visionary call has become much more meaningful with the pandemic.
NEW CALL: In the new period, I want to give a good news to encourage our SMEs in the field of digitalization. Today, we are starting a new call for “Digitalization in Manufacturing Industry” supports within the scope of KOSGEB KOBIGEL. Our aim here is to both expand the inventory of technology developer SMEs and increase the number of our companies using these technologies.
OPEN TO SEPTEMBER 17: In the fields of big data, internet of things, smart sensors, industrial robot technologies, augmented reality, we will support our businesses up to 1 million pounds. Our call is open until September 17. Our SMEs can apply to this call, which is a kind of competition procedure, via e-Government. We plan to announce the call results and the companies to be supported at the end of November. Good luck already.
