Highlighting that people will be able to access information about hundreds of thousands of industrial companies and their products with a single click, Işık said, "The products of the companies operating in 29 different industrial sectors and their production sites will be easily accessible thanks to the Lonca Industry Web Portal." The web portal is also available in English. Users can find information by searching according to company and product name, as well as by address. Işık said the portal will contribute to both local and international trade. Moreover, there are currently more than 126,000 micro, small, medium and large enterprises registered on the portal.
