At the same time, the number of construction companies established in the first 5 months of 2019 decreased by 117% compared to the same period of 2018. Bahadır Construction Board Member Ümit Bahadır stated that the companies producing concrete rather than living spaces where people are at the forefront are closed one by one, and that construction companies that produce sustainable projects and those who make the right investments through housing will continue to earn as of September.
