Turkey’s Inflation Rises To 67.1% In February.

Turkey’s annual inflation rose again in February, reaching 67.1 per cent despite a string of interest rate hikes.

The Turkish central bank held its key interest rate at 45 per cent last month, pausing after eight straight increases aimed at taming consumer prices that had remained stable at 64.9 per cent in January.

Every month, inflation rose 4.5 per cent in February, slower than the 6.7 per cent rise logged in January.

Inflation remains a pressing issue for President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s government ahead of local elections in March.

His ruling AKP party is trying to win back control of major cities, including Istanbul and the capital Ankara, currently held by the main opposition party.

Erdogan said Sunday that anti-inflation policies will begin to be felt in practice towards the end of the year.
