Industrial and Manufacturing

According to the Turkish Statistical Institute, Industrial Production in Turkey increased an average of 4.56% year on year from 1986 until 2013. While these sectors are highly sensitive to interest rates and consumer demand, the Turkish government continues to explore and implement development policies and legislative amendments with the explicit intention to increase productivity and remove obstacles to competitiveness. Local policies and legislation are steadily moving towards standardization with common international standards.
