“Turkey’s foresight and the new economic policy created under the leadership of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan are more competitive, attracting more investment, producing more, closing the current account deficit, offering market confidence and a more predictable environment“, Tatar said.
Referring to calls from some sectors to adopt the Euro as the Turkish Lira flounders, he said: “It is absolutely impossible for us to accept the opinions of some different circles that say ‘let’s switch to the euro immediately’ in fluctuating situations“.
