On the other hand, as the items that create costs on the banking sector relax and inflation decreases, these will be reflected in interest rates. " He spoke in the form.

Because when we look at our common history, the two countries won whenever they were close, and lost when they moved away due to certain problems. The peoples of these two countries, whose destinies are common, will contribute to all of us working together towards common interests and goals.

Fruit and vegetable exporters have a bit of trouble, but this will improve with the rapprochement with Russia. Turkey is a country of 80 million. It consumes as it produces. Therefore, we do not see an upward trend in problem loans in agriculture. This year has been a major brake in tourism. If you suddenly brake a vehicle traveling at a speed of 120 kilometers, there will be those jumping out of the window. Here, we use our airbags so that there are no leaks from the glass. As DenizBank, we immediately opened our airbags and made our configurations. This crisis will be overcome more easily if necessary measures are taken.

Let the tourist stay domestically as much as possible. The money collected should be used in the promotion of the country's tourism. " he spoke.
