Turkey aims to have locally developed car on road by 2019 - minister

ISTANBUL, June 23 (Reuters) - Turkey aims to sign an agreement this year on creating a locally developed passenger car, with the goal of having a vehicle on the road by 2019, Industry Minister Faruk Ozlu said in an interview with NTV on Friday.

Turkey has a well-developed automotive industry, in which local companies produce vehicles together with foreign carmakers, but the government has long harboured the ambition to create a purely Turkish-made car. (Reporting by Can Sezer; Writing by Daren Butler; Editing by David Dolan)
