Consider the situation from an industrial point of view; I would like to share another saying of Mustafa Kemal: “Industrialization is one of our main national causes. We will establish and operate all kinds of industries, large and small, whose economic elements are available in our country so that they can work and live. We must not forget that the way to success in this great national cause is to industrialize by relying on high technology that creates added value. For that, I think all of us, from ages 7 to 70, need to know how important quality education is.”
