In this regard, Turkey is one of the global leaders in the production, export, and machine production. The biggest gap in the sector is qualified human resource. In recent years, young people’s interest in the sector has been increasing every day.” Saying that the sector needs qualified human resource, Bayram noted that TABADER organized Certified Milling Training to close this gap.
