The 56 of our 41 OSB in the region is in operation, ie in production. 2 infrastructure construction, 4 planning, 7 expropriation, 2 is also in place selection. Over a thousand factories are producing in our OIZs operating during operation and in this region our OIZs provide direct employment to nearly one thousand people. Our OSB in Turkey in the Black Sea 75 percent of total employment in our region makes OSB. Again, the total electricity consumed by our OIZs, the 4, the natural gas, the 4 of this region is consuming OIZs. When we look at the occupancy rate of the OIZs in the Black Sea Region, we see that the occupancy rate remains at 6. This rate is far below the average in Turkey.

“We will continue to reduce the burden on industrialists“
Minister of Industry and Technology Mustafa Varank said m I think there is no problem that cannot be solved by consultation. Taking quick and final steps to reflect the system and spirit of the new era is our top priority. Map of Turkey's economy will continue on its way with confident steps with support. The economic confidence index of November showed that the expectations in the economy evolved positively. The index, which has been in a downward trend for a month, has increased by 3 in November. The increase in the real sector confidence index played the most important role in the recovery. We expect this to continue in the coming period. Efficient use of existing investment capacities and the increase of new investments are very important. Investment in growth and stability is a must. At this point, we will continue to reduce the extra burdens on industrialists and encourage investments. You need to focus all your energy on investment and production tüm.
Black Sea exports volume increased by 12
Underlining that there is a big improvement in the export volume in the Black Sea Region, Varank said N 11 billion dollars export volume in 3,5 per month was realized in the Black Sea Region. This amount corresponds to an increase of 12 by year. The first 3 is located in Trabzon, Samsun and Zonguldak. We need to have a well-functioning R & D and innovation ecosystem in order to be able to travel in high value-added production. With this awareness, we supported the 18 R & D center in the Black Sea Region. But I would like to point out that this number is too small. 18 R & D center in the entire Black Sea Region shows that our companies do not give enough attention to R & D. We must invest in R & D in the region and we need to reflect the added value of R & D to our products Bizim.
Varank also mentioned the first center of competence and digital transformation opened in Ankara and continued his words as follows: ti 3 days ago we opened the first competence and digital transformation center of our country in Ankara. Our firm will be able to learn lean production techniques in this center. We do not want this center to be limited to Ankara only. You can encourage the companies operating in our OIZs to participate in the trainings in Ankara. I should also mention the following: the year in Turkey will be the only center in Ankara 2020 to 10 We aim to increase the number of such centers. "
