Turkish Deputy Premier Bulent Arinc said on Friday that a potential global economic crisis would not affect Turkey thanks to the country's strong and dynamic economy.
"Turkey has a strong economy, political will and administration. Everybody knows that a potential global crisis will not do much harm to Turkey," Arinc told reporters in northwestern Balikesir province.
Pointing to the global economic crisis of 2008, Arinc said world's major economies had been shaken by such crisis, however, Turkey had not been affected much thanks to a series of rational measures and the government's ability to manage the crisis well.
The deputy premier said Turkey had achieved a remarkable growth rate, its export figures were promising, inflation rate was in decline and budget yielded surplus.
Arinc said several countries were now taking measures against the possibility of a second global crisis, adding that Turkey's economic administration and government had also taken very important measures on such matter.
"Turkey has the strength and dynamic structure that will protect it from a potential economic crisis," he noted.
