Turkish Central Bank Cuts Benchmark Interest Rate to 16%

10/21/2021 | 05:21am EST

By Kyle Morris

Turkey's central bank on Thursday cut its benchmark interest rate after President Recep Tayyip Erdogan last week fired three top officials.

The central bank cut its key rate to 16% from 18%. The benchmark rate was forecast to be cut to 17% by FactSet.

Mr. Erdogan last week dismissed central bank deputy governors Semih Tumen and Ugur Namik Kucuk, as well as Monetary Policy Committee member Abdullah Yavas.

Turkey's inflation rate accelerated on an annual basis in September, as the consumer price index rose 19.58% on year in the month compared with 19.25% in August.
