International credit ratings agency Moody's on Tuesday upgraded Turkey's economic growth forecast for 2021 from 5% to 6%, APA reports citing Anadolu.

In its Global Macro Outlook 2021-22 report, Moody’s also revised the growth expectation of the Turkish economy for 2022 from 3.5% to 3.6%.

It noted that a recovery in the tourism sector supported the growth in the Turkish economy thanks to the ongoing global economic recovery and progress in COVID-19 vaccination.

G20 economies meanwhile are expected to grow by 6.2% in 2021 and 4.5% in 2022, according to the Moody’s report.

It added that the developed economies of the G20 are expected to grow by 5.6% in 2021 and 4.2% in 2022.

The report also expects the inflation rate to remain high in 2021 for most G20 economies and to decrease in 2022.
