Assessment and recommendations

Over the past two decades Turkey has successfully shifted to a growth strategy based on open and competitive markets. However, recurrent macroeconomic instabilities slowed down trend growth. The recovery from the 2001 crisis has brought an unprecedented period of high growth and the first palpable signs of sustained catch-up and convergence. Currently Turkey is in the difficult transition period from a successful exit from “post-crisis recovery” to a path of sustainable high growth.
