TUSIAD recommends Turkey focuses on green, digital transformation

Turkey can take a much stronger place with the EU in the post-pandemic era, said the head of the Turkish Industry and Business Association (TUSIAD).

“While the pandemic disrupts the structure of supply chains, it also creates new opportunities in the context of EU-based supply chains, from which Turkey can benefit,” Simone Kaslowski said in his speech at the opening of the 23rd Enterprise and Business Summit.

Kaslowski said companies should include more sustainable and climate-friendly production patterns in their processes to maximize resource and energy efficiency potential. “We need to work together to protect the competitiveness of the EU and Turkey, to strengthen integration and advancement towards full membership. The world is moving towards digital transformation, green industrial revolution,” he said, and warned Turkey should not lag behind green transformation efforts taking place worldwide.
