“According to purchasing power parity, Türkiye has become the 11th largest economy in the world in 2021 and the 4th largest economy in Europe”, he assured before adding:
“We will inaugurate the factory of our TOGG electric car in Gemlik on October 29 and start mass production,” when it comes to building 100% electric vehicles.
Recalling Turkey’s breakthroughs in the economic and diplomatic fields, Erdogan clarified, “Nobody can limit the horizon of Türkiye to 780 thousand square kilometers”.
The Turkish head of state said, regarding the tensions with Greece that his country will not give in to pressure.
“We are implementing a constructive and active policy to solve the problems (…). We are not looking for tensions and will not give in to pressure”, he underlined.

“I say this with great pride, Turkish diplomacy is enjoying its most glorious period in recent centuries.”
