Turkey Factory Activity Shrinks in March
The Istanbul Chamber of Industry Turkey Manufacturing PMI fell to 48.1 in March of 2020 from 52.4 in February, pointing to the biggest contraction in factory activity in seven months. Difficulties in the sector were overwhelmingly attributed to COVID-19, which resulted in moderations of both output and new orders. Production softened for the first time in five months, while the easing in new business ended a two-month sequence of expansion. New export orders also softened to a large extent; input cost inflation remained marked due to currency weakness and supply shortages and output cost was also increased.
