He said that the upward trend of economic growth in the Euro Zone -- Turkey’s main trading partner -- and the recovery in global trade volume was good news for the country.
Simsek said that inflation rate in Turkey will decrease in the medium term with the backing of a tight monetary policy.
"We expect that inflation rate would decline to about 8 percent in the first quarter of next year," Simsek said.
According to the Turkish Statistical Institute, Turkey's annual inflation rate rose 11.90 percent in October
