Şahap Kavcıoğlu, President of the Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey, attended the ASO March parliamentary meeting to be held in the old Parliament building in Ulus as part of the 100th anniversary of the Republic and the 60th anniversary of the Ankara Chamber of Industry.
Kavcıoğlu, in his speech here, said;
Seasonally adjusted employment increased by 3.6 million compared to the end of 2019 and reached 31.8 million people. With the decline in energy prices, which became evident in the last quarter of the year, it is expected that the foreign trade deficit will decrease in 2023.
We evaluate in detail all the short, medium and long-term effects of the earthquake and the measures to be taken. It is important that most of the basic infrastructure has been preserved and that our country’s reflex to heal the wounds caused by the earthquake is important. We foresee that the impact of the disaster on the economic performance of our country will be compensated with the support of appropriate, balanced and targeted policies.
Leading indicators point to the strong resilience of the region’s and Turkish economy. In the upcoming period, the Liraization Strategy, which was created with the perspective of sustainable and permanent price stability, will continue to be implemented with determination.
