“The results of the survey are unexpectedly opt m st c”
Evaluating the results of the study, the Austrian Commercial Consul, Georg Karabaczek said that he believes they have achieved remarkable results with this research. Karabaczek, thinks that Austrian companies remaining positive about 2019 after a year like 2018 is mportant. “More than half of the companies are considering investing. These are interesting results. As far as we can see, there is no company leaving Turkey or plans to do so.
Obviously, we did not expect such results, which we found quite optimistic,” he noted. The situation on the ground is more or less similar with the survey results, he added. “In the first research in 2016, the companies were much more optimistic about the Turkish economy. Eighty percent said they would invest. However, it is important for us that the companies are a bit more hopeful for 2019.”
