Growth figures show strength of Turkish economy, minister says


Turkish foreign trade minister said on Tuesday that growth figures clearly showed that Turkey had a sound and dynamic economy.

State Minister Zafer Caglayan had a meeting with Canadian Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz in Ankara.

Replying to questions on growth figures made public on Tuesday, Caglayan said that Turkish economy grew 11.7 percent in the first quarter and 10.3 percent in the second quarter of 2010. "These figures are important. They showed Turkey has a sound and dynamic economy," he said.

"We will catch 6 percent growth rate at the end of 2010," Caglayan said.

Turkey's exports exceeded 76 billion U.S. dollars between January 1 and September 13, he said.

Caglayan said Turkey healed the wounds of global economic crisis.
