I am constantly reminded of one thing. Look, you have to forget the outdated, outdated, traditional methods. Every day, you have to think, 'How can I innovate in business processes, products, marketing methods?' Without research, development, innovation, you go 3 years, you go 5 years, but then you will stumble somewhere.” he said.

That is why we, those who truly love this country, should stand by our President. It needs to move this country forward in industry, R&D, entrepreneurship and technology.
