Effective Government for Stronger Growth
Economic growth remains solid in much of Central, Eastern, and Southeastern Europe (CESEE). Outside the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), growth has continued at a good pace on the back of accommodative macroeconomic policies as well as buoyant consumption supported by strong real wage and employment growth. In Russia, the pace of economic contraction has moderated, as the economy appears to have adjusted to lower oil prices and the sanctions shock. Other CIS economies are gradually exiting from recessions on improved external demand. For the region as a whole, GDP growth is projected to reach 1.3 percent in 2016 and 2.1 percent in 2017, largely reflecting the improved outlook in the CIS.

What we do
The IMF office in Ankara follows economic developments and policies in Turkey, liaises between the Turkish authorities and the IMF staff in Washington, and coordinates IMF technical assistance. It is also a source of information about IMF views for the public, local and foreign analysts, investors, academic and research institutions, and Turkey's international partners and their diplomatic missions.
Who we are
The office in Turkey was opened in 2000, with Odd Per Brekk as the first Resident Representative. He was followed by Hugh Bredenkemp (2004-07), by Hossein Samiei (2007-2010), by Mark Lewis (2010-2014) and more recently by Srikant Seshadri.
