“The document is aimed at promoting cooperation in strategic industries and technologies between companies of Ukraine and the Republic of Türkiye and at supporting the implementation of existing and starting new projects in these areas,” the statement reads.
The memorandum was signed by Minister of Strategic Industries of Ukraine Oleksandr Kamyshin and Minister of Industry and Technology of Türkiye Mehmet Fatih Kacir.
Among the areas of cooperation are the development of capacities and opportunities for manufacturing autonomous vehicles, in particular, unmanned aerial vehicles; increasing the production of various types of UAVs; research and development in the field of autonomous systems, space and other technological sectors of strategic industries of the two countries; other technical cooperation necessary for developing strategic industries.
It is expected that the memorandum will significantly facilitate the production of UAVs in Ukraine, especially given the construction of a new factory by the Turkish company Baykar in Ukraine. Also, as was reported earlier, two Ukrainian defense industry enterprises had signed three new agreements with the Turkish company Baykar with the details undisclosed.
