Oct. 10 (Bloomberg) -- Turkey’s budget produced a surplus of 2.1 billion liras ($1.2 billion) in September compared to a deficit a year earlier, the Treasury said.
The performance compared to a deficit of 6.8 billion liras in September 2010, the Treasury in Ankara said on its website today. Excluding interest payments on debt, the budget produced a surplus of 5.7 billion liras, compared to a deficit of 3.8 billion liras a year earlier.
The Treasury figures are preliminary data that measure cash inflows and outflows. The Finance Ministry will release full budget numbers later this month.
