“Sudan, one of the fastest-growing countries of the Africa continent and having extremely fertile lands, is carrying enormous potential in terms of agriculture sector. This international project through which I believe that it will benefit for Turkey with especially unimpaired, namely, natural agriculture applications will be realized by the leadership of TİGEM from Turkey. We have been considering Sudan as very correct market for us and keeping it on the top of the target countries list since 2009. This agreement signed between two state has become a significant candidate to create added value not only for the firms but also for the economies. GIAD is one of the most professional and important organizations of Sudan and with which we have been conducting business trustfully. I believe that we will make our business cooperation which we were conducting through distributorship agreement until today much wealthier and more creative following this manufacture agreement. We will take important steps not only in Sudan markets but also in markets of another 19 countries which are the members of Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) with the ArmaTrac’s tractors which will be manufactured in Sudan. Our most significant feature is our tractors which we have designed as the farmer and land of the country we are getting into. The tractors which we designed and manufactured by taking Sudan and peripheral countries serious several years ago is responding to Erkunt Tractor and Turkey as a big business potential today.”
