TET is one of the major players of "The Information Age”. With a global total export of over 10 billion USD, the industry provides not only considerable amount of employment but also competitive advantage. The modern society benefits considerably from the electrical-electronics and ICT industry. The automation of repetitive production and administrative processes is a prerequisite for efficient, cost-effective and humane working conditions at many production facilities.

 

Global transportation, electricity supply as well as information and communications networks are essential to a smooth and effective international cooperation - and not just on the economic and business front. That's why the global industrial and information society of the 21st century will rely on an efficient and innovative electrical-electronics and ICT industry. "In the Digital Age, the development and broadening application of powerful digital technologies will accelerate the pace of economic and social transformation across Europe and around the world. Those who embrace digital technologies as the central transformational force of this new age will prosper...”

 

As a member of almost all international political, social and economical institutions, and complying with all commercial regulations set up by these institutions, Turkey has become one of the countries which is preferred by leading multinational firms for realizing joint ventures in the world markets. Electrical-electronics and ICT industry has made the biggest contribution to this position of Turkey. In Turkey, most of the companies operating in the field of electronics started business through foreign licence agreements. In this context, a significant number of companies have foreign capital. On the other hand, a large number of Turkish manufacturers have affixed the CE Mark to their products for exports to the European Union. At the same time, Turkish manufacturers are closely following developments in international quality and environmental standards. Turkey has shown a considerable rate of growth in electrical-electronics and ICT industry in the last 30 years. The companies in the industry invested in the latest technologies in their facilities to reach the capability to provide necessary research and development and technology for many products. The industry produces high value-added and high-tech products and its share in the export scale of Turkey is continuously increasing together with the total export volume in the international market.

 

Electrical-Electronics and ICT industry which has high value added consumer products shows a general trend of continuous increase in production and exports. This industry will also continue its improvement, thanks to the EU Customs Union, by eliminating trade barriers and measures such as customs duties.
