The way out of this is a new generation economy focused on circular economy and innovation

Necat Altın argued that all methods known socially and economically were tested during the coronavirus outbreak; and that a new paradigm change is needed today. Altın said: “Now is the day to do what is necessary for man and the planet; rather than saying something new. This outbreak made us hear the footsteps of a new era of economy that would change all industries. As a country, we must renew ourselves accordingly. In this process, we are ready to offer all our knowledge to the service of our country”.

Underlining that the troubles experienced are not a financial crisis; Altın said that this period can only be overcome by realizing cooperation, unity and creating value together.
