Turkey: Consumer confidence falls in April

The downtick in April was driven by worsening views on both the general economic outlook and their own financial situations over the course of the next 12 months: The Covid-19 pandemic engulfing the world and weighing on trade levels, tourism and domestic economic activity is expected to shrink the Turkish economy this year.
