How Do You Evaluate General Economic Progress as a Business Person?
Many developed countries’ economies were affected by the current conditions. However, I think that the consumption and production plans of the people will change in the post-pandemic period, the countries will turn towards internal production more and the domestic consumption will increase. And I foresee that the production-supported economy programs implemented by our country will become more important in the post-pandemic period and we will get out of this process more strongly. This is an economic, global opportunity for developing countries like us.
