"When we say that the fundamental indicators of the economy are good, we can prove this by providing relevant figures.

Short-term fluctuation is characteristic of all countries, especially the developing countries with small economy”, the Minister said.

The Minister of Finance added that it is wrong to say that the changes in the exchange rate of the national currency hampers business. According to him, the situation is the opposite and the economy is growing.
