“The stock exchange advanced over 90,000 points, but there have been some halts that started in the Gezi incidents in June and continued with the Dec. 17, 2013 process,” Arınç said April 18, speaking at the general assembly of Turkey’s Milk, Meat, Food Industrialists and Producers Association (SETBİR).
Recalling the index has embarked on a recovery trend in the aftermath of the March 30 municipal elections, the deputy prime minister said “Now the question is whether it will reach the 90,000 level. It will and maybe it will surpass it, we have hope. When? After presidential elections.”
