ANKARA (Reuters) - Global e-commerce companies will be liable for taxes on goods sold directly to Turkish customers under a draw law proposed by Turkey’s government, Finance Minister Naci Agbal said on Friday.

Agbal also told the state-run Anadolu agency that the budget deficit will be at around 60 billion lira ($17.5 billion) year by the end of the year.
