It has a production capacity of close to 2 million and a supporting industry. We are perhaps one of the most developed countries in Europe in this sense. We also believe that we can repeat our success in motorcycle and automotive production and produce motorcycles for Europe. Therefore, it is very important that we increase our share in the domestic market and increase our volume in the domestic market.”
