Turkey will close out 2019 with positive growth figures, the country’s treasury and finance minister said on Thursday.

Turkey will continue to support industry and the real sector, and value-added production is the priority for growth, Berat Albayrak stressed in an event in the eastern Malatya province.

After topping 25% last year, inflation has been gradually falling, from 20.3% this January to 9.26% in September.
