How was the development of the mattress sub industry in 2019 in terms of export? What kinds of facilities will you make about export in 2020?
As everyone knows, the general economy of our country underwent a stagnant process in the first 2 quarters of 2019 and this development affected the bedding and furniture sectors. After the summer season and the significant positive movements in our economy, the contraction in the sector has left its place to forward ventures again. And therefore, although the beginning of 2019 has not been in the desired direction for our company and sector, we anticipate that the average will close with the rising trend towards the end of the year. In the export leg; After the economic contraction on the global basis, the prospects of war, and the easing of monetary policies in June 2019, which started with the horizontal course in the shadow of the trade wars of the countries, when we look at 2019 in terms of exports; Despite the economic contraction, the possibility of war and the wars of trade, the data towards the middle of the year show that our sector will rise again and close the end of the year with a slight increase.
In 2020, in line with this information and 20 years of experience; dynamic staff, reliable flexibility, easy accessibility, rapid return without compromising our principles, such as having more market share from our multinational colleagues are preparing our plans in line with a strategy.
