Standard & Poor's raises 2015 growth forecasts for Turkey
S&P stated that Turkey’s gross domestic product exceeded their expectation in the first half of this year owing to a surprising surge in private investment in the second quarter. However, the agency thinks that Turkey will be unable to sustain this stronger performance as the weak global economy including a persistently slowing Chinese economy, upcoming elections and ongoing political uncertainty will further weigh down on the country’s economy.
Previously, the IMF lowered its growth estimate for Turkey for 2015 to 3% from the previously estimated growth rate of 3.1%.
