Turk­ish man­u­fac­tur­ing ca­pac­ity use im­proves in Au­gust

Dünya Executive - - OVERVIEW -

The Turk­ish man­u­fac­tur­ing in­dus­try’s ca­pac­ity uti­liza­tion rate in­creased slightly on a monthly ba­sis in Au­gust, ac­cord­ing to a Cen­tral Bank sur­vey re­leased on Au­gust 26. Turkey’s man­u­fac­tur­ing in­dus­try used 76.6 per­cent of its ca­pac­ity this month, up 0.4 per­cent­age points from July. Ca­pac­ity uti­liza­tion rate (CUR) fig­ures are based on re­sponses to the bank’s business ten­dency sur­vey by lo­cal units op­er­at­ing in the man­u­fac­tur­ing in­dus­try, ac­cord­ing to the Bank. The monthly data does not re­flect the Bank’s views or pre­dic­tions, as 1,790 firms re­sponded to the sur­vey this month, the Bank said. In the six main in­dus­trial groups, the high­est ca­pac­ity us­age was posted in in­vest­ment goods at 76.5 per­cent while the low­est was 74.3 per­cent for durable con­sumer goods.
