Thanks to the continuing rise in foreign demand and with the help of major government transfers, the Turkish economy is likely to have grown by 3% in 2014. In 2015, we expect GDP to expand by 3.3% owing to the ongoing depreciation of the lira, a rise in transfer expenditures and a slight easing in monetary policy. Growth should even improve in 2016 and 2017 on account of probable cuts in the policy rate, continued government-induced consumption and investment, as well as improvements in net exports.
