Turkey to implement daylight saving time all year round after 2 years

Turkey is expected to begin implementing daylight saving time all year round after nearly 2 years, the officials said on Sunday.

Turkish Energy and Natural Resources Ministry reached a consensus with the relevant institutions in regard to implementation of daylight saving time all year round and change of reference meridian.

If the Council of Ministers approves it, organizations such as airlines, banks and stock exchange will be given 1.5 or 2 years for adaptation and then implementation will begin.

Eventually clocks will be set back by one hour on the last weekend of October 2008, as it occurred in the past.
