Evaluating the Bank's financial results, Mr. Suat İnce, the General Manager of TSKB, said “In the first nine months of the year, we closely monitored the signals of recovery in Turkey's economy and the supportive regulations implemented by the authorities. While planning our Bank’s long-term future in light of these developments, and in order to adapt to the dynamics and developments in domestic and international markets, we maintain our intensive efforts in both the financial and sustainability fields.”

Mr. İnce stated that in the third quarter of the year, TSKB had diversified and stepped up the funding sources it extended to support Turkey's private sector investments, adding, “We renewed our syndicated loan, which was due in July, at an 80% rollover rate, exceeding our target.

“In September, we signed a new resource agreement with the Development Bank of China amounting to USD 200 million. This source of funding has the distinction of being the first and the longest-term credit provided by the Development Bank of China under the guarantee of the Ministry of Treasury and Finance to a bank in Turkey. With the resource under the Belt and Road Initiative conducted by the People's Republic of China, we will support production, industry, SMEs, energy, infrastructure, and health and education projects in our country in the coming period.”

Our Bank's specialist teams, which distinguish themselves with their economists, finance specialists and technical advisors, guide organizations in their journey of transformation, development and sustainability.
