Sharing his views on the International Defense Exhibition and Seminar, TAI General Manager Prof. Dr. Temel Kotil made the following statements:
“Pakistan is our brother country with which we maintain an ancient friendship. In addition to business development activities with Pakistan, we aim to increase joint work on high technologies that will guide the aircraft of the future. Within the scope of the fair, we aim to strengthen bilateral studies, including cooperation in the academic field, especially with the countries of the region.”
TAI has carried out many joint studies with Pakistan in the academic field in recent years and reached an agreement with the National University of Science and Technology (NUST), which is among the top 500 universities in the world, in 2019 within the framework of capacity building and human resource exchange.
The company, which became the first company from Turkey to open an office in Pakistan’s first technopark, National Science and Technology Park, had taken steps to jointly develop new technologies for the future of the aviation ecosystem between Pakistan and Turkey. Strengthening the cooperation between the two countries by undertaking forty-two F-16 modernization projects in 2009, Turkish Aerospace Industries signed an agreement with the Pakistani Armed Forces for the export of helicopters in the past years.
