We have realized a year that the traumas of economical and financial crisis penetrating entire world, have been continued to be bandaged. Since the depth of financial crisis and its feature cannot be compared to the previous years, the treatments period has also been extended. The precautions taken by the European Union countries and especially by our neighbor Greece, having a direct influence for the large mass of people depending on the economy, have been causing both political and social explosions and it seems that this will go on in near future as well. In the U.S.A. where the crisis is thought to be brought under control in the shortest period, we believe that the financial/political inconveniences created by them subsequent to the elections late in the year will remain in the agenda for a while.
Our countrys economy has got warm in the beginning, by means of the politics applied between the first and last half of the year, then has been tried to be cooled. Although the growth rate has been decreased, the hope of positive heading for the current deficit has been appeared and we have the opinion that this year will pass very well as compared to last year. Inflation has been kept under control and a stable exchange rate policy has been followed. It has been expected that the year 2013 will be in the same direction and in a better growth potential.
