President Recep Tayyip Erdogan attended the inauguration of the Bogazisi University Candili Science, Technology and Research Building.
In his speech here, Erdogan said, “This center will give energy to our country by converting the generated information into technology. With the help of our Ministry of Industry and Technology, some infrastructure of deep technology base was established. For example, one of them is a study that will reduce our country’s dependence on fossil fuels, which have the potential to be applied in many fields, from biofuels to food supplements, from animal feed to fertilizer. Studies on the effective use of natural resources, which will support our country’s goal of climate change and environmental protection and zero waste, will be conducted in this unit. Another supported study is the Research, Development and Support Laboratory Project for SMEs producing pharmaceuticals, vaccines and medical devices for the health sector. Our Life Science Center, where these studies will be conducted, will be one of the proud technology brands in our country with its infrastructure and qualified human resources. The rapid development of the health sector in our country and in the world has made such research even more important. ” Says
Continuing his speech, Erdogan said, “We have all seen that the health sector is as important as the defense industry during an epidemic. We want to reduce the current account deficit and improve the export of such products by meeting the demand of the health sector with domestic and national resources. I believe that SMEs receiving services from this center will be able to compete with large scale companies in a short period of time with the help of academics and researchers. The foundation of our deep technology will conduct various studies such as natural gas production from coal, earthquake emergency response systems, earthquake safety, genetic research, nanomaterials and robotics research. As is well known, we have shared our roadmap with the public for the development of health products and technologies in our country, with short, medium and long term goals in mind. We carefully follow the nine strategic goals, five strategic goals, thirty-one policies and actions, and five important projects in our roadmap. Investments such as this technology base that we have put in service provide important support in implementing our roadmap. Hopefully, as these efforts bear fruit, we will witness together how our country achieves its goals step by step, “the statement said.
“It has managed to overcome a major crisis with minimal damage.”
Erdogan said, “The coronavirus epidemic and the Russia-Ukraine war that started have sent a very important message to all humanity.” Countries that do not have strong health infrastructure, no matter how rich or prosperous, are vulnerable to serious threats. We have all seen and felt that it is not possible to tackle a massive health crisis like epidemic without supporting information and technology through production, human resources and infrastructure. Thanks to its investment in health infrastructure over the past two decades, Turkey has been able to cope with this crisis with minimal losses. I believe that those who ridicule the hospitals in our city and slander investments labeled wasteful are grateful to us for these opportunities, although they did not explicitly disclose this when the epidemic began. Of course, just building a hospital building and hiring health workers is not enough. We also need to develop and manufacture equipment that will equip these buildings and facilitate the work of our healthcare workers. As a country, we have left the first stage behind. We are now in the process of giving all our energy and time to the second episode. Our Life Science Center symbolizes this effort. Beyond protecting the health of our own citizens, we aim to become the most important health care center in our region and in the world. Earlier, our citizens used to go abroad for diagnosis and treatment. Now millions of people from all over the world come to our country for the same purpose. He spends billions of dollars here. Next year, our goal is to get a share of 10 10 billion from the global healthcare market by serving 1.5 million overseas patients. When we combine the quality of our services with our technology development and manufacturing capabilities, our revenue will grow faster. ” Says
“Turkey seeks to be one of the safe havens of the future in every respect.”
President Erdoানan said, “Similarly, at a time when the food crisis is threatening the world, the importance of production and technological advancement is increasing. Beyond becoming self-sufficient in the food sector, we want to go our own way with a capacity that will feed all humanity and meet the needs of the entire world. It is clear that the global crisis is likely to be severe in the near future, especially in developed countries. In each case, Turkey has seized it, despite obstacles we can scarcely imagine. ” In this climate, everyone will benefit by investing in their own country and trusting their own people and people. The propaganda of those who constantly humiliate their own country, humiliate their own nation and humiliate their own state on social media only to cover their own complex. The efforts of those who do not exist to capture the agenda of our country in an ideological obsession with scientific achievement, development of technology and production skills and to cloud the minds of our nation are in vain. Because there is ultimately support, incentives and programs for everyone who wants to work, produce and innovate in this country. ” He said.
