Turkish Minister of Finance Mehmet Simsek said Thursday that the investors still had confidence in Turkey's success despite recent Taksim protests.
Simsek evaluated the Taksim incidents speaking on Aljazeera Channel and said Gezi Park projects aimed to turn Taksim into a more modern square increasing the living standards of people living around.
Stating the decrease in the stock market was caused by FED, the central bank of the United States controlling the money supply, Simsek said the recent exit of around 1.3 billion dollars out of Turkey was a small amount when compared to the entry of 24 billion dollars in the last 12 months.
"Investors still believe in Turkey's success. Turkish economy is based on strong roots," said Simsek.
Emphasizing they would listen to the demands of the citizens about environmental matters as well as taking the environmental factors into account for the big projects, Simsek said, "We have heard the demands of the citizens who obeyed the laws and we will be interested in their concerns."
