ISTANBUL – Sustainable and healthy growth should be managed simultaneously with budget discipline, Turkey’s finance and treasury minister said on Friday, adding that steps would also be taken to deepen capital markets and increase funding instruments.

Berat Albayrak, who is also President Tayyip Erdogan’s son-in-law, made the comments in an interview with broadcaster NTV. He said discussions have started on up to 30 percent savings within many of Turkey’s ministries.
