Turkey: Consumer confidence hits highest reading in over a year in June
Consumer confidence rose to 62.6 in June from May’s 59.5. June’s result marked the best performance since April 2019. As such, the index moved closer to, but remained firmly below, the 100-threshold which separates pessimism from optimism among consumers.
The uptick in the headline figure was driven by less downbeat views on the general economic situation in the country in the year ahead, which underpinned less pessimistic views on the labor market in the same time period. Moreover, consumers’ assessment of their financial situation turned slightly less sour, while their probability of saving over the next 12 months inched up.
