Monday, a report released by the Turkish Statistical Institute said the rate of capacity utilization in manufacturing increased to 66.8% in April from 64.7% in March, but was lower than the 81.7% in April last year.

The statistical office said the main reason for not working in full capacity was a shortage in the domestic demand. Apart from this, financial problems, shortage of raw materials and labor problems were also responsible for the lower capacity utilization.
