This paper was prepared by George Kopits, Senior Economist in the Fund’s European Department. He received useful comments from several Fund colleagues, and in particular from Peter Hole, Mohsin Khan, Donald Mathieson, Thomas Mayer, Jayanta Roy, and Rüsdü Saracoglu. Lan Pham and Peter Woo provided computational assistance, and Joslin Landell–Mills provided editorial assistance. The views expressed are those of the author and do not purport to represent those of the Turkish authorities or of the International Monetary Fund.
It should be noted that the term “country” used in this document does not in all cases refer to a territorial entity that is a state as understood by international law and practice. The term also covers some territorial entities that are not states but for which statistical data are maintained and provided internationally on a separate and independent basis.
