ANKARA: Turkish Finance Minister Berat Albayrak will announce a strong program to combat inflation, the state-run Anadolu news agency quoted him as saying on Sunday.
Earlier this week, data showed Turkey’s inflation surged to a 15-year high of nearly 25 percent in September. Albayrak had later said he would announce a program to battle rising inflation next week.
Albayrak was also cited as saying a rebalancing period in Turkey’s economy had begun and that there would be no compromise on budget discipline.
