ANKARA, Sept 16
ANKARA, Sept 16 (Reuters) - Turkey's budget deficit will come in below the 34 billion lira ($16.8 billion) currently forecast by the government, supported by privatisation receipts and a pick-up in domestic demand, Finance Minister Mehmet Simsek said on Monday.
Simsek said in a statement that public spending was driving a revival in domestic demand and the pace of economic growth.
