"The government has focused on bringing the economy into a rhythm and accelerating it," he said and added that some positive signs have started to be seen recently. He said his third term is very challenging in terms of the overall economic situation of the country and he has taken this challenge as an opportunity. "Our economy was badly hit by the earthquake and Covid 19 pandemic and affected by political ups and downs and instability. The effects of the Russia-Ukraine war are still visible," he said and stressed that economic reform cannot be done without effective cooperation between the public and private sectors. "The current pressure of the economy cannot be faced without the help of the private sector," he said. [caption id="attachment_35217" align="alignnone" width="1000"] sf7df8f}F, @* r}tM
