Turkish PM says gov't to stick to program ahead of June votes

Turkish primer minister has sought to give assurances that his government will stick to its economic program, and it will make no concessions in implementing a tight budgetary
discipline.

"We are doing our best not to ruin the momentum our country has built up. Economic populism is what destroyed economic balances in this country in the past. We will not fall into that same mistake," Recep Tayyip Erdogan told on Tuesday a group of businesspeople in a meeting in Kiev, Ukraine.

Turks are set to go to polls in general elections scheduled for June.

Erdogan said the AK Party government worked hard to put Turkey on a pace of economic growth coupled by an investment-friendly environment characterized by stability and confidence.

"We will not make any concessions from that discipline neither in the run up to the elections nor afterwards. And we expect that very same sensitivity and support from the business quarters as well. Any hindrance in stability and confidence will hit businesspeople first," he said.
