Are you ready for the changes in the automotive industry?
Turkey was the largest growing economy globally in 2017, with record automotive sales and production figures. Despite the initial H1 figures indicating a decline in sales for 2018, Turkey has now reached the status of being the fifth-largest automotive production base in Europe and there are fantastic opportunities to be seized!
