Stating that Turkey leads the milling machinery sector in global terms, Demirtasoglu said: “We believe that Turkish manufacturers, who use “Industry 4.0” in our sector, will continue to contribute for development of technology in Balkans. In this context, DESMUD and BISAV will play a remarkable role between these two regions.”

Additionally, he stated that the acceleration of the commercial activities would have positive impact on relations. “Proud to see that Turkish businessmen lead the global market in such an important industry. The 1,62 billion dollar export of Turkish milling sector should be also underlined. We hope to contribute to this, too. DESMUD and BISAV will implement good projects.
