Ankara is becoming one of the most important centers in the world in terms of the defence and aerospace industry. Being home to 4 Turkish companies that are listed in the top 100 companies in the world, Ankara has become an extraordinary and significant city that hosts companies producing products and technology in different fields. In recent years, our sector has had a chance to express itself better due to the developments in the Turkish defence and aerospace industry, the projects realized and the increasing interest of the public. In addition to the strategic importance of the defence and aviation/aerospace industry, our society is starting to realize that the technology produced, and the solutions developed are the leading technologies that can be used in every aspect of our lives. This awareness also contributes to the fact that our industry is capturing the interest of more and more entrepreneurs and producers.

A concrete example of this increasing interest is being witnessed by the ICDDA event (Industrial Cooperation Days Defence and Aerospace in Ankara) which will be held for the fourth time this year by the OSSA (OSTIM Defence and Aviation Cluster).
