Islamic Finance in Turkey – Looking Ahead With Confidence: Dinar ...
So far the Turkish economy has proven to be sufficiently resilient against some monetary re-adjustments that in the past would have caused problems. The present government, tied up with the upcoming elections and the EU accession talks, still manages to master inflation rates and maintain economic growth objectives. Due to ongoing legislative and budgetarian efforts, a reassuring International Monetary Fund (IMF) report and a cautious but positive Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) report on corporate governance were obtained.
