Turkey end-2017 inflation seen at 6.5 percent - PM Yildirim

ANKARA, Oct 4 (Reuters) - Turkish inflation is seen at 7.5 percent at the end of this year and at 6.5 percent in 2017, Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said on Tuesday, raising the forecast for next year from a previous 6.0 percent target.

At a news conference to announce Turkey’s medium-term economic programme, Yildirim said the government was determined to reduce inflation to a low and sustainable level, forecasting a level of 5 percent in 2018 and 2019.
