“In parallel to the growth of the population over the past two years, new technology, new methods and new markets should be targeted. We have a long-term plan. The world’s population is increasing substantially over the next two millennia. By then, there will be a billion population growth in Europe. Population increase from India to the Indonesian region. Also, the Indian Ocean and Africa populations will increase considerably. We need to adjust to this situation. The new products should be made using new technology, “the prime minister added.
