‘Next 4 years offer opportunities for Turkey’: Albayrak
The next 4 years will set the foundation for Turkey’s economic dynamism, the Finance and Treasury Minister said on July 5. “Turkey has gained significant experiences in the fight against foreign currency attacks over the past periods,” Berat Albayrak said in the 7th Ordinary General Assembly of the Association of Financial Leasing in Istanbul. He recalled that Turkey’s current account deficit dropped to $8.6 billion in April, compared to the historical high with $57.9 billion in May 2018. He also said Turkey will post a current surplus in June for the first time since the 17-year rule of Justice and Development (AK) Party. Also mentioning Turkey’s New Economic Program, Albayrak said the priority is solving the current deficit and high inflation.
