I can see a few of my GC cousins down south salivating from anger to this report. You know what I mean, the way Bary Humphreys used to do in his comedy show down under.

seems be be based on mounting debt and stimulated by, what is for Turkey, low lending rates. Welcome to the West. Watch out for poor /TL exchange rates, 2.20 may soon be on us again. So much for the lib con.

Not such a good opinion of the TRNC's economy here...

Mark don't mistake the fly in the ointment that is the TRNC economy for Turkey's... this is about the economic powerhouse that the Turkish economy is turning out to be. By virtue of good financial housekeeping and not selling off their manufacturing base to the lowest bidder.

Mark.



I fully accept that the TRNC economy is in dire straights.



What was being argued, was the strength of the Turkish Economy and its negotiating abilities to settle The Cyprus Problem and move the country forward. It is a dynamic Economy scheduled to be in the top 5 in the next few years, and therefore can afford to pick its friends, whether they choose East or West.



Just imho, thats all.

I agree with you both - the TR seems to be going great guns at the moment - let's hope some of their good management reaches the TRNC

Msg 1 and Wyn - definitely emerging as a hot spot for investments - more and more Turkish Sector funds being offered all the time.

Maybe TR doesn't actually want to join the EU. Without going through the motions, though, can TR improve its society? There are many in TR who are happy with the status quo.

They want to be invited... no one likes to think they are not invited to the party... whether they accept would probably be subject to a referendum.
