ISTANBUL, September 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
In the last 10 years, tissue paper consumption has strongly grown in the region spanning from Russia to Turkey to the Middle East, showing a growth rate per year in most cases in the 8-9% range.
In the same timeframe, Turkey has developed into a major global tissue player with exports reaching as far as the United States as the domestic market was increasingly unable to absorb all the added capacity. More, considerable new investments are now in the pipeline in the whole macro-region.
How will these developments play out in the face of the Ukrainian and Syrian-Iraqi challenges? How will the balances of power around the Black Sea reshape economies?
Turkey is the major native Black Sea power. It has interests throughout the Greater Black Sea Basin, namely, in Syria, Iraq, the Caucasus, Russia and Ukraine. Thinking in terms of a Black Sea strategy, Turkey becomes one of the indispensable allies in any strategies in the region.
