The speech of the scientific secretary of the conference
Today, the automotive industry of this country is on the verge of a fundamental change.
This transformation was initiated due to the evolution of the market. By choosing ways to
participate and invest in design of new products by the large automakers, however, the industry
actually enters the era, which requires structural changes. In particular, the evolution of the
supply chain is essential.
The supply chain that currently includes large manufacturers and suppliers of raw materials and
related logistics infrastructures, has a traditional structure which is inadequate for a competitive
automobile production at the new conditions. The traditional supply chain structure, which has grown
steadily over the past years, is not adequate to support this sharp automotive industry move.
Scattered moves in supply chain cannot prepare this network to meet the industry needs. A united
movement at the industry, economy, and even country politics level is needed in order to provide the
industry with a world-class competitive capability.
This conference is a valuable venue for imparting the opinions of intellectuals, researchers,
manufacturers, entrepreneurs and managers of private and public sectors, aiming at providing a
solution for designing the path to this great development in the supply network, automotive industry
and improving the necessary platforms in the country.
