Turkey and the economic crisis

Due to slight economic growth, Turkey is beginning to be recognized as an emerging market and one of the newer industrialized countries in the world. After the global financial recession, many economical aspects of the country crashed. However, Turkey implemented stimulus packages, including temporary tax cuts, and as a result, Turkey’s economy recovered from the crisis faster than many other nations.

Not only is Turkey’s economic recovery is evident in an annual rise in GDP, but also in a significant plunge in unemployment since the crash as well as in a decrease of the inflation rate (277044), which reached decade-low levels.

Turkey specializes in the production of clothing, automotive, iron and steel, chemicals and agricultural products. Due to a high agricultural output rate, Turkey has been efficient in food production and is viewed as one of the most plentiful producers of fresh fruit worldwide. Agricultural production has also seen growth over the years in the country; however Turkey has slowly become less dependent on it as a main source of income.
