Technology Minister Varank attends rocket competition in Turkey’s Aksaray

Industry and Technology Minister Mustafa Varank attended a rocket competition on Sept. 13, held by Turkey’s leading defense contractor Roketsan as part of Teknofest in Turkey.

As part of Turkey’s first aerospace and technology festival, “Teknofest Istanbul,” Roketsan organized a rocket competition in Turkey’s Central Anatolian province of Aksaray.

“We hope that with this kind of competition we will prepare our young generation to both the aviation industry and technology,” Varank said.

He invited all citizens to “Teknofest Istanbul” to be held on Sept. 20-23 at the city’s new airport.

Teknofest Istanbul is being organized by the Turkey Technology Team Foundation (T3) and the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality to promote and showcase Turkey’s rapid advance in technology, organizers say.

More than 20 partners including government bodies, private companies, academic institutes as well as the Turkish Radio and Television Corporation (TRT) and state-run Anadolu Agency are supporting the event.
