Central Bank of Republic (Turkey)

The Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey is primarily responsible for steering the monetary and exchange rate policies in Turkey. The primary objective of the Central Bank is to achieve and maintain price stability. Price stability refers to an inflation rate low enough to be ignored in economic decisions. The Bank determines at its own discretion the monetary policy that it will implement and the instruments that it will use to achieve this objective. This means that the Bank has instrument independence. Financial stability is a complementary objective for the Central Bank. The Bank is responsible for taking the regulatory measures with respect to money and foreign exchange markets to ensure stability in the financial system in Turkey. Another duty of the Bank is to determine the exchange rate regime in Turkey jointly with the government, and to design and implement this regime. In addition, the Central Bank is responsible for keeping the gold and foreign exchange reserves of Turkey and managing these reserves for the good of the country. The Grand National Assembly of Turkey has indefinitely delegated its authority to print and issue banknotes to the Central Bank. The Central Bank of the Republic Turkey is responsible for establishing payment and securities settlement systems to ensure fast and secure transfer and settlement of funds and securities; and for introducing necessary regulations to ensure the uninterrupted operation and oversight of the existing or future systems.
