ISTANBUL, April 1 (Reuters) - The Turkish economy is expected to grow around 4 percent this year, accelerating in a balanced fashion in line with the government's medium-term programme, Finance Minister Mehmet Simsek said on Monday.
In a written statement following data showing the economy grew a less-than-expected 2.2 percent last year, Simsek said inflationary pressures were expected to lessen, while flexible monetary policy and a growing atmosphere of confidence would have a positive impact on the recovery in domestic demand.
