Economic developments such as ratios and interest rates will get better in Turkey, Berat Albayrak, the treasury and finance minister, said on Friday.

"The Turkish economy continues to protect its durability although every internal and external shock," he stressed at an economy event in the Aegean province of Izmir.

He also said Turkey will move forward with a balanced and quality economy strategy based on production.

Touching on the nation's current deficit, he underlined that it could fall to under $20 billion by the end of January.

Albayrak added that interest rates in Turkey will drop much more.
