“Our country has made serious moves in recent years. Per capita income has exceeded 10 thousand dollars, but we have a risk and threat. Our foreign trade has a deficit of 110 billion dollars. Our current account deficit is around 70-80 billion dollars. When the sources of this are examined, it becomes clear that our production capacity is behind the consumption in the country. The definition of developed country can be made in many ways, but I evaluate as follows; If a country can produce transportation and communication tools with a unique design and put them into service, that country has developed. If we build our train, plane, ship, road and communication vehicles with a unique design today, our current account deficit will be closed and we will become a truly developed country. The world has become global, but those who work well, work effectively, do their calculations and books well in this global square can achieve a sustainable development. In this regard, our industrialists, our researchers who carry out R&D work, in short, everyone has a great responsibility. "
