ANKARA, Aug 16 (Reuters) - Turkish calendar-adjusted industrial production fell 3.9% year-on-year in June, the Turkish Statistical Institute said on Friday, logging its tenth consecutive month of decline
Considered a pre-cursor to growth data, industrial output began to decline in the wake of last year's currency crisis which tipped the economy into recession.
In a Reuters poll, the calendar-adjusted industrial output figure was forecast to fall 1.01% year-on-year. Month-on-month, industrial production was down 3.7% in June on a calendar and seasonally adjusted basis, the statistical institute said.
The manufacturing industry index fell 4.2% month-on-month, while the mining and quarry sector index rose 2.4%.
Turkey's economy contracted in the fourth quarter of 2018 and the first quarter this year as the lira crisis and high interest rates weighed on the major emerging market.
