Finance Minister Naci Ağbal said, "Today's growth data shows once again that financial incentives we have put into practice as a government, such as advance tax cuts, Credit Guarantee Fund, KOSGEB, premium postponing, investment incentives and employment support are true decisions. These incentives supported growth of investment, production, exports and employment and accelerated domestic demand. "
Ağbal evaluated the growth figures of the first quarter of the year announced by the Turkish Statistical Institute (TUIK).
Ağbal who says that economy is improving thanks to the encouragement and support the government has put into practice, noted that the economy grew by 3.5 percent in the last quarter of last year and grew by 5 percent in the same quarter of the previous year and it will continue by following this trend in the first quarter of this year.
Agbal, who emphasized that positive growth of investments and foreign is important, said:
"Net exports, which have contributed negatively to our growth in the past year, made a positive contribution to the first quarter. Investments in the first quarter, which increased by 2.2 percent, will support the growth of the rest of the year with strong political and economic stability and support for credit access while private consumption expenditures will continue to support economic growth in the coming quarters with periodic tax cuts we made.”
