Turkey is set to become a global player in the defense industries in years to come, vowed President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on Saturday.


Speaking at a mass election rally in Ankara, Erdoğan said Turkey will achieve this feat through "unique designs and advanced technology."

Turkey is currently using 65 percent indigenous products in its defense operations.

According to data compiled from Turkish Exporters Assembly, the sector's exports surpassed the target of $2 billion last year, hitting a record high level of $2.035 billion.

The defense and aerospace industry showed the best performance in terms of growing exports, among all sectors in 2018.

Turkey's exports hit an all-time high with $168.1 billion last year, the country's trade minister announced on Friday. Ruhsar Pekcan stated that exports in 2018 climbed 7.1 percent year-on-year, compared with nearly $157 billion in the previous year.
