EDITORIAL The world is interlinked across borders Dear Reader, before a product is integrated in a machine or a fully assembled system within a production hall, intermediate products often traverse corporate divisions and national borders. Although the global economic performance is growing from year to year, taking a look at future challenges can be quite worrying to some. Last year there were a number of upheavals which resulted in the weak growth of international trade in 2016, these included the Chinese economy continuing to weaken, the Brexit vote in the United Kingdom and the consequential effects on EU trade relations that are currently still hard to assess, the election of the new US president – Donald Trump, and the failed constitutional referendum in Italy. These are all events that could affect future developments. However, there are also plenty of reasons to adopt a brighter outlook for the future. Technological innovation in many countries has not been diminished and has driven growth in many industrial sectors. Especially in the age of digitalization, the road to an integrated industry is irreversible and opens up new perspectives throughout the world with developments from the electrical engineering sector, for example. The machine and system sector is also one of the areas that is expanding, especially in the Turkish economy where it is having a positive effect on the trade balance. The mechanical engineering sector contributed 9.3 % (2015) to the total Turkish export volume, thus making it the second largest sector. Turkey exports to more than 200 countries. Sixty percent of exports go to Europe and the USA. At the WIN Eurasia trade fair in Istanbul in March, you will see what modern production processes, components and solutions relating to Industry 4.0 can look like. We will report all about this in the latest issue of the World of Industries – Industrial Automation. You will also be able to read about the latest developments in the field of industrial automation technology that enable your machines to communicate with one another.
