Turkey: soon the first national production satellite in space
Erdogan and the economic growth of Ankara
The first Turkish-made communications satellite will be launched into orbit in 2021. The President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced this during the programmatic speech in which he exposed the economic results of 2019 and identified the objectives for the future. Erdogan expects a 5% increase in GDP for 2020, "that is higher than the estimates of 3.4%" and aims to achieve 3.2 million new jobs by 2022, lowering the unemployment rate 9.8% in the next three years. "By strengthening production, exports and the employment rate, and by protecting our rights on the international scene, particularly in the Mediterranean, we are opening the door to a new period of growth", he said.
