Deferred demand came into play. Automobile housing sales come to life. Lowering the interest rate of the central bank is positive, but lowering it may support inflation. It should not create an imbalance. On the exchange side, cost inflation may be a problem if we grow rapidly on the demand side. If we go to 13-14, we will have to increase the interest. ”
Foreign currency generating jobs must be signed

The banking sector should increase by 15-20% in growth. Banks should be in a position to give credit to business people easily so that investors see their way. Turkish lira can lose value as much as inflation. The Turkish lira is currently the least valued currency after Argentina. It should be increased to bring foreign currency-generating jobs from abroad. That TL has lost so much value. It undermines this situation in terms of competitiveness and completion in different business lines. Our brain drain is in question. ”
