The Central Bank of the Russian Federation kept interest rates at the same level

SAFAKNA TURKEY – The Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey (CBRT) kept the discount rate unchanged at 9 percent.

In the text of the resolution, the CBRT indicated that pressure from external demand is balanced by domestic demand in growth forecasts.

Expressing strong growth in the first three quarters of 2022, the CBR said figures for the last quarter of the year indicated that slower growth due to weakening external demand was offset by relatively strong domestic demand. .

According to the CBRT, the impact of external pressure on the manufacturing industry on domestic demand and supply remains limited so far, while employment growth is more positive than in peer countries.

Pointing out that growth momentum is being supported by structural gains, especially in sectors that boost employment, the CBRT said that the share of sustainable components in growth has increased, and that the strong contribution of tourism to the current account balance, which is better than expected, continues to extend to all months of the year.

“Loan growth rates are closely monitored”
