ISTANBUL — The "Doblo U.S. Production Start and Export Ceremony," organized in TOFAŞ's Turkish Automobile Factory in Bursa and attended by Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu, announced one of the biggest successes of the Turkish automotive industry: The beginning of Doblo exports to America.
Davutoğlu congratulated TOFAŞ, Koç Holding and Fiat Chrysler, and thanked all the workers who were involved in achieving such a success, saying, "If the deceased Vehbi Koç were here, he would be extremely pleased to see that his saying, 'I'm in for my country,' has come true. This is a day to be proud of. I am pleased to attend this ceremony to celebrate the start of exporting Doblo to America."
It was noted at the ceremony that about 175,000 Doblos will be exported, which accounts for almost half the total car production in 2002. The total value of such a large quantity of exports will be around $3.2 billion, again accounting for almost all of the automobile exports in 2002. Davutoğlu emphasized that such figures indicate how the Turkish economy and automobile sector has grown within recent years.
