‘A Turk could head the IMF’
ISTANBUL - Anatolia News AgencyDeveloping economies are continuing to have more of a say in the global economy, World Bank Turkey Director Martin Raiser said May 4. Speaking to Anatolia news agency, Raiser said it was definitely possible to see a Turk at the helm of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) or the World Bank in the future.
Turkey’s exports are shifting toward the East, the Middle East and Africa, and Turkey has great potential in new markets, he said.
The World Bank is planning to allocate a $6.2 billion budget for Turkey alone, Raiser said. “We believe that the Turkish economy, in the medium-term, will grow 5 percent annually,” he added.
