The country’s balance of payments figures for June will be released by the Turkish Central Bank on Friday, Aug. 14.
Twelve economists surveyed by Anadolu Agency estimate a current account surplus of between $2.3 billion and $5.1 billion.
The survey also showed that on average, Turkey’s year-end current account deficit would be $18 billion – ranging between $9.5 billion and $25.2 billion.
In a separate survey, a group of 11 economists projected Turkey’s unadjusted industrial production index to have risen 2.3% in June.
Estimates for the figure, which will be announced on Friday, by the Turkish Statistical Institute ranged between minus 10% and plus 12.4%.
They also estimated that the calendar-adjusted industrial production index would drop by 1% year-on-year in June.
The term “calendar-adjusted” is used to refer to data where calendar and holiday-originating effects are removed.
