Japan is the second largest steel producing country in the world after China. It imports the ore and coke completely. We also pull and sell the world's scrap. We have the opposite of the world. We take scrap from Japan and America. This is not sustainable. Turkey is the world's largest scrap importer. This is not acceptable. We cannot produce qualified steel. We loaded the long product. We want to change this structure. We did an intensive work on ore-based liquid steel production. We want the liquid steel production to increase. At this point, we will continue to support those who want to invest. Turkey, 70 percent ore, scrap from the production balance when it comes to 30 percent of their scrap to be self-sufficient. It will not have to import scrap from the world. In this respect, we care about the sector. We especially want KARDEMİR to maintain its pioneering position in this sector. Today we are the 8th steel producer in the world. With the next few years of investment, we will surpass Germany and become the seventh steel producer in the world and the first in Europe. We do not see this alone enough. We want to be Europe's leader in qualified steel as well.
