Last year, the number of vehicles we exported in the midibus segment was 4 times the most fuel-efficient other exporter company. In line with the aforementioned result, we were able to achieve the 'Export Championship', which has become a tradition for our company in this segment, for the 18th time. We achieved a significant success in this segment as well, reaching a share of 10 percent in total bus exports. Considering that our country is the bus production center of the world, it will be seen more clearly what an important success this is. While the total bus and midibus exports from Turkey decreased by 2021% in the sector in 24, as Anadolu Isuzu, we increased our unit-based exports by 113% in the same period. In this respect, 2021 has been our third best year in our export history, after 2008 and 2019.
