Prospects in Eastern Europe
What kind of growth do you aspire to in the next few years; in which sectors, markets or regions do you see significant growth opportunities?
Despite the Ukrainian crisis, we see continued growth opportunities in Russia, Ukraine, as well as basically all other Eastern European markets. These opportunities relate to all different areas of chemical distribution with special focus on certain industries depending on the country. We also see further growth potential in Turkey and partly in the Middle East.
How do you intend to implement these plans and seize these opportunities?
We intend to participate in these growth opportunities through our subsidiaries and sales offices in these countries and regions, whereas we are currently serving the Middle East from our subsidiary in Turkey as bridgehead.
