Country Report
The article presents forecasts on Turkey's economy. Turkey is seen to be a strategic outperformer in the emerging Europe region in the long run, considering that the country's economy is better placed to take advantage of the global economic recovery beginning in late 2010. The five key reasons for this optimistic view on Turkey include low external asymmetries, a stable banking sector, structural declines in inflation and interest rates, a strategic location and an undervaluation in macroeconomic terms.
