TBD’s Vice Chairman nder zdemir made an announcement on behalf of the association and stated that main focus shall be improving the relations with members. Mr. zdemir also said another target is to create nationwide added value with the power gained through active participation of members and added:
“The Informatics Association of Turkey shall establish and improve right and principle-based relations with all parties believing in developing Turkey through informatics. As the new board of TBD, we believe that the way to create a competitive informatics industry is to produce nationwide added value. It is important that information technologies are expanded in a way that is in line with equity in services offered to citizens.
We think the industry’s development is dependent upon creating solutions together with vertical industries in order to achieve productivity. We shall work with a sincere feeling of responsibility and service to develop and implement right informatics policies and to help people benefit from information technologies as much as possible, especially through social projects.”
The government shall be actively monitored
The Informatics Association of Turkey aims to closely monitor the government’s informatics policies and provide active contribution to such efforts. Vice Chairman nder zdemir stated that the association shall establish a strategy group and create coherence in policies. “We shall make suggestions to government policies for supporting informatics. We will also monitor inappropriate operations and, as a non-governmental organization, we will use our initiative power in the form of criticism and public pressure.” Mr. zdemir also said TBD plans to build extensive cooperation with other NGOs, especially those operating in informatics industry. The new decisions and priorities of the association are expected to create a strong dynamism and differentiation.
