Turkey Deficit Widens

Turkey’s current account deficit hit $4.2 billion in November 2017, marking an increase of $1.94 billion year-on-year, according to official data released on Friday, Anadolu Agency reported. According to the Turkey Central Bank’s balance of payment report, the country’s 12-month rolling deficit reached $43.75 billion in November. “This development in the current account is mainly attributable to a $1.82 billion increase in the goods deficit recording a net outflow of $4.67 billion, as well as a $555 million increase in primary income deficit to $1.04 billion,” the bank said. Travel, a major item under services, recorded a net inflow of $1.2 billion in November, increasing by $322 million compared to the same month in 2016, the bank added. Central bank data also showed that the country’s current account gap in the first eleven months of 2017 stood at $39.4 billion, up from some $28.6 billion compared to the same period in 2016. Turkey’s annual current account deficit in 2016 was around $32.5 billion, relatively stable compared to the previous year’s figure of $32.1 billion.
