Turkey Interest Rate

Turkey Interest Rate

1-Week Repo Rate in Turkey

Turkey's central bank policy rates from 2013 to 2022 were marked by volatility. Political influence on the central bank led to unorthodox monetary policies, including substantial rate cuts despite high inflation. By 2022, these policies resulted in a severely weakened Lira and soaring inflation, prompting criticism of the central bank's independence and effectiveness in monetary policy management.

The 1-Week Repo Rate ended 2022 at 9.00%, down from the 14.00% end-2021 value, but up from 4.50% a decade earlier. For reference, the average 1-Week Repo Rate in Eastern Europe was 8.40% at the end of 2022. For more interest rate information, visit our dedicated page.
