A message by Mr. Ufuk GÜÇLÜ General Manager of RMK Marine.

Started in 2008, Naval Systems Seminar (NSS) brings together Turkish procurement society with naval platform and system providers along with result-oriented programs that cover panel discussions, demonstrations of emerging technology and networking activities.
In contrast to global economic recession, Turkish defense market continues to grow with the increasing local content ratio. While various types of shipbuilding programs are under progress, a few more are on the way. This year, NSS is expected to reflect this growing potential and create common ground where local and international players meet. As of being a leading platform supplier, RMK Marine is very pleased to be main sponsor of this exciting event. We all look forward to meeting you at NSS.
