Turňa said that the Latin American market currently is still in a recession because of the previous financial crisis. "Nevertheless, we hope to reestablish our presence on this territory and regain the position we had in the past ," he added. He called Peru, Ecuador, Brazil, and Uruguay attractive markets. DMD Holding representatives also will hold talks on supplies of Slovak engineering products, especially tractors. "However, we do not except to sign tangible contracts during the fair," Turňa said.
