Turkey hikes interest rate to 45% after inflation touches 65%

Turkey’s central bank on Thursday 25th January 2024 hiked its key interest rate to 45%.

It comes amid an ongoing struggle against double-digit inflation for Turkey’s policymakers, with the rate hike the latest step in that ongoing fight.

30 Turkish Lira to 1 U.S. dollar

Inflation in Turkey increased nearly 65% year-on-year in December 2023, up from 62% in November, and the country’s currency, the lira, hit a new record low against the U.S. dollar earlier in January 2024 at 30 Lira to $1.

Analysts predict this will be the last hike for some time, especially with local elections approaching in March 2024
