Turkey expects improvement in current deficit, inflation in H2
Officials in Turkey forecast improvements in the country's current deficit and inflation rate thanks to measures that have been taken, the Turkish vice president Fuat Oktay said on Monday.
Speaking during a meeting of the country's Economic Coordination Council, Oktay said coordination between institutions was a necessity for a stronger and resilient economy.
Oktay said the council, which was formed in June last year, will analyze the Turkish and global economies, economic stability, and development and will strengthen coordination between institutions.
The Turkish economy grew by 7% in the first quarter of 2021 thanks to effective measures by authorities, he added, underlining that growth in the second quarter would be better still.
Oktay said the country's exports would exceed $200 billion at the end of the year, with a target of $210 billion.
He also said that the country would reveal its new 2022-2024 Medium Term Program (MTP) this September, Anadolu Agency reported.
