Business as Usual – Turkish Economy Unaffected by Attempted Coup
The Turkish economy has not suffered as a result of the July coup attempt, according to Prime Minister Binali Yildirim.
Yildrim announced that the amount of cash inflows since July surpassed outflows by around 1 billion US$.
Stating that ‘Turkey is still the country to invest in’, he further added that employment has reached an all-time high and that cash reserves had jumped from 120 billion US$ to 126 billion US$ in the time following the coup attempt.
He continued, ‘the government has improved conditions to attract investment from overseas and there are also reforms in customs and company taxes on the way’.
“Life goes on. Trade and businesses continue, so we will keep shopping, we will keep trading.”
