ISTANBUL, Reuters – Turkey’s annual inflation of 2021 has risen to 36.1%. President Tayyip Turkey said Monday that he is saddened and his government will work to reduce it to the single digits.
Erdogan spoke after a cabinet meeting and said that the increase in inflation is due to higher commodity prices worldwide as well as a fall in the value of the Turkish lira (which lost almost 44% last year).
He stated that authorities will inspect excessive price increases and would announce additional support to civil servants’, pensioners’, and public officials’ salaries.
