Turkey: Business confidence hits 10-month high in March
March 27, 2017
The Real Sector Confidence Index published by the Central Bank improved markedly from 105.3 in February to 108.1 in March, the highest figure in 10 months. As a result, the index lies further above the 100-point threshold and indicates optimism among firms.
March’s result was driven by improvements in firms’ views regarding future production, employment and overall order books. At the same time, sentiment towards the general business situation grew slightly less pessimistic.
