Oktay said the council, which was formed in June last year, will analyze the Turkish and global economies, economic stability, and development and will strengthen coordination between institutions.
The Turkish economy grew by 7% in the first quarter of 2021 thanks to effective measures by authorities, he added, underlining that growth in the second quarter would be better still.
Oktay said the country's exports would exceed $200 billion at the end of the year, with a target of $210 billion.
He also said that the country would reveal its new 2022-2024 Medium Term Program (MTP) this September.
The MTP focuses on economic and social policies to increase public welfare in line with development targets, he underlined.
