"Toffe" also talked about the increase in public spending in the first quarter in Turkey, noting that the increase in public spending reflects the increase in spending in the Turkish health sector in the same period, which coincided with the increase in Coronavirus infections in the country, where Turkey adopted a nationwide broad preventive and treatment policy.

Regarding the post-Corona period, Mr. P. Mattis, a senior economist at the Netherlands-based "Rabobank Group" for banking services, said: "The Coronavirus global crisis can create important opportunities for Turkey ".
