Turkey has again confirmed its status as the most high-beta economy in CESEE, with a host of indicators suggesting that a ‘V-shaped’ recovery is in progress. The currency crisis and sharp economic downturn of 2018–2019 now seem a long time ago, following a sharp bounce-back in the second half of last year. Growth could be around 4% this year, but that will mean a return to reliance on credit growth and external imbalances, and the old familiar vulnerabilities of the Turkish economy.
