Key Quotes

“The latest PMI survey by Istanbul Chamber of Industry and IHS Markit indicated that business conditions remained tough in Turkey’s manufacturing sector at the end of 2018. The headline PMI index fell further into the contraction territory of 44.2 in December from already weak 44.7 in November.”

“On the positive note, output and new orders eased at lower rates than in November. A relatively stable Turkish lira contributed to a further easing in the rate of input cost inflation allowing manufactures to lower their prices.”
