The Turkish economy expanded 7% year-on-year in the first quarter of 2021, beating market forecasts of a 6.7% rise. It is the strongest growth in 3 years, driven by industrial production and other key sectors that have recovered well from the coronavirus hit as most restrictions were lifted in March. Faster increases were seen for manufacturing (12.2% vs 10.5%) and services (5.9% vs 4.6%) and construction (2.8% vs -12.5%) rebounded. Also, the information and communications sector posted the biggest growth in the quarter, surging 18.1% (vs 15.1%). However, a strict lockdown was imposed in late April which will likely hurt economic activity in the second quarter. On a quarterly basis, the economy expanded 1.7%. source: Turkish Statistical Institute
