Turkey vehicles sales shy in October waiting for election results.

Turkey vehicles sales Fiat-Tipo_2016

Turkey vehicles sales re-started the growth in November following two falls. Renault market leader ahead of Fiat and Volkswagen. The new Fiat Aegea arrived in the market landing in 17th place.

Economic Outlook

Turkey’s ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) surprisingly won the 1 November election by a landslide. Although the AKP regained control over the parliament, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan failed to win a two-thirds supermajority, which could have enabled him to unilaterally revise the constitution.

The election took place in a climate of increasing political tension and violence, which, if not solved, could further destabilize the country going forward. Nevertheless, AKP’s decisive victory and the end of political uncertainty are likely to bolster business sentiment in the months to come.

In the economic arena, on 11 October, the government presented the Medium-term Economic Program and the Financial Plan for the 2016–2018 period. While the document includes lower growth targets, it also foresees higher spending in social policies and defense.
