Talking about the practices in DMO in order to support domestic production in our country in his speech, Mr. CİVRİZ said that “We sell 100 percent domestic products in 22 of the 35 main product groups in our catalogue system. In the remaining sectors except informatics, the rate of domestic products is also high. The rate of our domestic products sales is 70 percent. In this regard, we endeavor to undertake important works by closely working with non-governmental organizations, professional chambers and related public administrations. If we, with the same aim, want to make all that we argue here become a policy, the establishment of a Localization Council consisting of the authorities from different institutions, non-governmental organizations and especially DMO, and the production of policies with common mind will be very beneficial for the development of our country and will be a solution to the problems we are talking about today.”.
