Transportation Ministry published a circular stating that all metro and tram car tenders must support local production.
According to the circular, tenders for metro and tram cars must have below conditions provided that they meet safety and competitiveness conditions as well:
- No technical requirements preventing local companies from the tender
- Supportive conditions for local production
- The local production criteria in existing tenders should be met
- In every tender, there must be procurement of good, service or consultancy from local companies
In recent tenders for metro and tram cars, this kind of conditions were started to be met, and companies with local production facilities in Turkey were awarded in almost all tenders.
There are four companies which have production facilities in Turkey. Hyundai Rotem/Eurotem, Durmazlar, Bozankaya and CRRC/MNG.
