Sakıp Sabancı's own words

We managed to pull off a negotiation between Akkardan and Hardy Spicer. We organized ceremonies to celebrate; however, when the agreement went to Ankara for governmental approval, one authority accused us of giving away a Turkish company to the English. So this very important agreement got cancelled. We had to import many automotive pieces that we could have produced if our agreement hadn’t been cancelled.
