ISTANBUL, April 30 (Reuters) - Turkey's economic growth recovered slightly in the first quarter and is expected to be higher this year as a whole than last, central bank governor Erdem Basci said on Tuesday.
Basci said he expected a significant fall in inflation in April, and said the bank would continue to take 'measured steps' to increase forex reserves as long as loan growth remained above its medium-term target of 15 percent.
