Tugrul Arikan, general manager of the company, told Anadolu Agency that their RHD buses were only manufactured for the U.K. market.

"We will produce more buses for the countries, including Northern Ireland, Malta, Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC), Greek Cypriot administration, Singapore and Hong Kong," Arikan said.
