"Economic confidence index which was 85.9 in August increased by 3.1% in September to 88.5," the Turkish Statistical Institute (TurkStat) said in a report.

CONSUMER CONFIDENCE CLIMBED 3.2 PERCENT

The month-on-month rise was driven by improvements in consumer confidence, services, and real sector indices.

Although being in the positive territory, real sector confidence index posted a slight rise this month, up 0.5% from August. In September, the construction and retail trade readings were in the negative zone, falling 2% and 1.5%, respectively.
