EDITORIAL Problem zone

EDITORIAL Problem zone on the edge of Europe? Dear Reader, The Turkish economy with its constant growth over the last ten years has gone through considerable development. The average economic growth over the last 10 years was 4.7 % and was very dynamic. However the years of success are over. And so the growth in Turkey had already slowed down significantly in 2014 and was then still only at 2.9 %. And also in 2015 the prognoses of 3 % were just about achieved. The cause for this downturn above all is the subdued domestic demand at home and the significant crash in the construction industry. In addition there are the political and geopolitical risks and problems that do not exactly help with an upturn. But what role does mechanical engineering play in the country on the Bosporus? If the mechanical engineering industry had been growing by 20 % or even 30 % per year since 1990, then with an increase here of 5 % we can also no longer follow on from days gone by. In the medium term however we can reckon with a more favorable economic situation in engineering, so say the experts. According to them the planned expansion of production capacities in the industry leads to a growing demand for machines and plant equipment. Some two thirds of this is introduced from abroad. Germany is the most important supplier. You can experience the engineering abilities Turkish companies possess, irreplaceable for competitiveness in an international market, at the WIN Eurasia trade fair this March in Istanbul, Turkey. You will learn more about this in our article from page 8 onwards. In order that mechanical engineering is also powerful enough in future, according to Adnan Dalgakıran, Chief Executive Officer of the Export Organization of Machine Manufacturers, however several far-reaching re-structuring measures will be required. According to him there are too many small companies in the industry who copy one another. This reduces the quality of the products and has a negative effect on exports. For this reason the companies should place more and more importance in research and development. In order to reach this ambitious goals by 2023 Turkey must take a leap forwards in mechanical engineering. Small steps of progression will in any case not be enough.
