Turkey’s economic development plan includes reducing taxes on primary entrances to citizens, such as electricity and gas. Dispense the import of energy that burdens the budget and trade balance, and replace it with alternative and local power.
The launch of the Turkish electric vehicle is also approaching, which will play a significant role in supporting the growth of Turkey’s economy.
Mahmoud Ismail, President of the Association of Independent Industrialists and Entrepreneurs (Musayyad), expects Turkey to see further growth in industry and exports during 2023.
Asmali predicted that improving the global economy would contribute to further growth of Turkey’s economy and exports.
Turkey was the only country in the Group of 20 (G20) after China to achieve economic growth during 2020, in which the coronavirus pandemic cast a shadow over the global economy.
