Turkey exempts foreign development banks from some lira curbs

The international developments banks that open a lira account with domestic banks will be allowed to conduct swaps transactions involving buying liras with the Development Investment Bank of Turkey, and in the FX swap market at the Istanbul bourse.

They will also be allowed to conduct repo and reverse repo transactions at the bourse, and lira depo transactions with domestic banks.
