The President of the Turkish Industry and Business Association (TÜSİAD) Erol Bilecik delivered opening remarks at the High Advisory Council meeting, convened in Ankara. The High Advisory Council is a biannual deliberative conference where the business world takes stock of domestic and global political and economic developments and offers suggestions to policy makers from a business perspective. The Minister of Education was also in attendance.
The training activities organized by TÜSİAD and ESMT aim at adapting the workforce to the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
TÜSİAD strongly believes in the importance of following closely all the developments relevant to the integration of Industry 4.0 process at all stages of the value chain in other countries that we are competing with or in advanced economies we aim to reach. Within this framework, we have designed a cooperation project on the topic Industry 4.0 with the Berlin - based European School of Management and Technology (ESMT1) last year, which has already carried out substantial studies about digital transformation.
TUSIAD and BDI, during their meeting in Berlin, focused on Industry 4.0 and digital transformation topics as part of a positive agenda between the two countries. In this context, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been signed between the two institutions to enhance cooperation in the areas related to Industry 4.0.
