"We believe despite the current bad Situation is still in the potential of Turkey."

at the same time, the recession in the country, but not without leaving traces in the group by. "The current Situation is very challenging," said BASF spokeswoman. "We feel a marked reluctance of our customers in all sectors." The group sold in Turkey, among other things, plastics, textile chemicals, as well as starting materials for care and cleaning products.
