Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said Oct. 18 Turkey forecasts ending the year 2021 with a 9% economic growth.
"While most of the G20 countries threw in the towel in 2020 at the peak of the pandemic, we became the second-largest growing country among them by expanding 1.8%," he said, speaking at Turkey-Angola Business Forum.
Turkey is committed to boosting trade ties with the entire Africa and will hold a Turkey-Africa Business Council meeting very soon, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who is visiting Angola as part of his three-nation tour to the continent, has said.
