Incentives for single roof
Evaluating the R & D Reform Package Bozankaya Automotive R & D Center Representative Dursun Cicek, the R & D center in the package required to establish the number of personnel from 30 to 15, said the condition should be well controlled. R & D can be done not for incentives but because of the activities aimed at solving a need for the public interest, Çiçek said:
Ir If these incentives are not taken under control, R & D will be made for incentives, which is very dangerous. Public resources can be wasted. Each ministry promotes its own incentive, which creates chaos. If the ministries work in coordination, more efficient results will be obtained if the incentives are distributed under a single roof. There is no inventory of the tools, equipment and test machines that the companies receive with the incentives provided. For example, instead of providing support for a 1 million-dollar test device, the method of kapsam X-firm support for the same scope two years ago için can be selected. The government needs to develop an incentive system for purchase guarantee. In addition, in the public procurement, the implementation of additional support in the legislation as a percentage of local firms in 15 will pave the way for our domestic companies. Ayrıca
