Mr. Burkay, President Of BTSO;

TEKNOSAB will be at the fore of industrial revolution!
Mr. Fahri Işık, Minister of Science, Industry and Technology mentioned that he found opportunities to investigate Technology Organized Industrial Zone (TEKNOSAB) on site from different aspects and said “We are sure that site selection was perfectly right choice.”
Bursa Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BTSO) continues bringing senior officials from all around the world together with representatives of Bursa business world. BTSO did the honours for Mr. Fikri Işık, Minister of Science and Industry and Technology at the Consultation Meeting held in the Service Building with the broad participation of Bursa business world representatives. Giving a speech in the meeting, Mr. Fikri Işık said that every time he comes to Bursa he gets excited even when its 8th visit.  Stating that the most visited city is Bursa right after Istanbul and Kocaeli, Mr. Işık said "Bursa would not only produce, but also take investors’ breath away. There is an increase in production and excitement it causes in Bursa day by day. One of the reasons of this is the fact that there are industrialists who like working for their city and country. The number of business people identified with their own city is very small when compared to the number of business people in Bursa.
Expressing that very important projects have been carried out in Bursa thanks to BTSO and its management staff and so it has created a synergy,  Mr. Işık notified that he appreciated selflessly works of Mr. Munir Karaoğlu, the Governor; Mr. Recep Altepe, the Metropolitan Municipality Mayor  and Mr. İbrahim Burkay, the President of BTSO. Mr. Fahri Işık said “İbrahim Burkay, President of BTSO is a close friend for us and we hold him in high esteem. His projects is admirable and he has an vision and gives his all for his projects. You couldn’t see these kind of projects in any other cities. Working with the city ambition is something different. I congratulate to much valuable board members of BTSO and their President İbrahim Burkay for the energy they expend.
“We examined TEKNOSAB closely.”
Mr. Işık, Minister of Science, Industry and Technology talked about TEKNOSAB Project which was started to be built under the guidance of BTSO in accordance with objectives on high-tech production and export of Bursa. Stating that he had an opportunity to investigate TEKNOSAB on site from different aspects, Minister Işık said “Unlike those speculations sugested by some people, we had an opportunity to see how well the site choice for TEKNOSAB is.
500 R&D Centres on target!
Minister Işık mentioned that Bursa would become one of the top cities that would take the advantages of R&D Reform Package that they had put into practice after a while of intense consultation with the business world representatives. Stating that all details concerning Reform Package should be analysed by professionals from companies closely, Mr. Işık said “We have 245 R&D Centres at the moment.” Our target is to increase the number of these R&D centres up to 500. Stating also that they would restructure TUBİTAK (Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey, Mr. Fikri Işık said “We would not attach R&D Projects to TUBITAK if the projects could be carried out by private sector.  If necessary, we would get services from the private sector at that point. When we have 500 R&D centres, we do not want to waste time for R&D studies which could be carried out by private sector.
Mr. İbrahim Burkay, President of the Board said that economy of Turkey has expanded almost  4% in 2015 despite many difficulties occured. Mr. Burkay said “This growth represents more than twice of total EU growth. I would like to thank the industrialists who have created this picture that many countries have watched envyingly. We do not want to be part of the game which has been planned by others. Turkey makes great efforts to create its own game in all areas. I would like to point out that national production and technology are very important in this game. In Bursa, where we show our willingness to produce domestic automobiles, we are not just moving process of automotive, also aircraft production will start in Bursa. Companies in Bursa could make both aircraft and tank, and I hope they could also produce domestic automobiles. Just believe in power of our private sector. In this sense, we should identify the needs of partners correctly and make accurate diagnoses.
Calling attention that Industry 4.0 transition has began with smart production process in the world, President İbrahim Burkay said “We don’t have any chance not to get into this new industrial revolution. As of BTSO, we have carried on our projects with this vision.” President Burkay mentioned that they put TEKNOSAB project into practice in Bursa with objectives on production process based on information and inovation. Remarking that establishment procedure of TEKNOSAB which will form next 100 years of Bursa, was completed within only one year, Mr. Burkay said “TEKNOSAB will take a systematic approach to the structural transition into the industry with cluster groups in target sectors, organize trade zones, R&D centres, and centre of excellence, BTSO Technology University, and Logistics Centre. TEKNOSAB will be established in collaboration of Bursa Governorship, Bursa Metropolitan Municipality and Karacabey Municipality, will take the leadership of high-tech industrial transition.
Stating that the number of R&D centres in Bursa has been increased to 38 from 23 in last year, Mr. İbrahim Burkay said “We had promised to have 50 R & D centres. We have around 40 R&D centres at the moment. We raised our sights by reducing the number of staff required from 30 to 15 within the scope of R&D Reform Package and by providing support. As of Bursa business world, we promise to raise the number of companies up to 70 which have R&D Centre.
