Turkey’s auto production fell 3 percent on a yearly basis, said the Automotive Manufacturers Association.
Some 73 percent of the manufactured vehicles were exported, marking a 14 percent annual decline to 77,569 units last month.
The country’s earnings from automotive exports totaled $2.3 billion in January, down 6 percent from a year ago.
