Turkey’s current account balance is projected to post a $1.2 billion surplus in 2019, an Anadolu Agency survey found Wednesday.
The central bank is set Friday to announce the current account balance for 2019 and estimates from a group of 12 economists range between $800 million and $1.7 billion.
December’s current account balance is forecast to register a deficit of $3 billion. Estimates hover between $2.6 billion and $3.3 billion.
Turkey’s current account balance in November 2019 saw a deficit of $518 million while it posted a deficit of $27.6 billion in 2018.
The country’s new economic program, unveiled in September, forecast a current-account-surplus-to-GDP ratio of 0.1% for 2019.
