'Russia expects inflation pressures'
Prof. Dr. November, 'to buy goods from Turkey, the price of products not bought in Russia will increase the inflation in Russia will also cause pressure' he said.
Abant zzet Baysal University (ABÜ) Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences Dr. Kamer Kasm said, "Not buying some products from Turkey will cause inflation in Russia to pressure it because it will increase the price of the products it does not buy in Russia."

Prof. Dr. In November, he told AA correspondent that the reaction given by Russia to overthrow the war plane, which violated the Turkish airspace, was excessive.

Reminding that Turkey did not participate in the sanctions imposed on the West by the West after the Ukrainian crisis, "It is clear that Russia, which has been subjected to such sanctions by the West, will also harm the Russian economy if it encounters inflationary pressures due to sanctions imposed on Turkey in an economic sense. Is not very rational in terms of Russia, "he said.

Russia also voiced that Turkey has stopped expeditions for tourists to come to Turkey, saying, "As of January 1, 2016, it will abolish visa-free transit.
This means that all of them will apply to Russia as a package means a serious blow to the economy of Russia as well as to Turkey. "Russia's decision to go to other constraints, such as the purchase of vegetables and fruits, will also negatively affect its domestic market. November, Russia continued: "If Turkey does not buy tomatoes, it has to present it to the domestic market, which means that it should be bought from another source, which means that it will cost more. The increase in food prices is automatically reflected in inflation in the Russian Federation, which leads to inflation. "Trump Turkey will earn billions 18.11.2016 - 14:54 | Last Update: 18.11.2016 - 14: 54 Trump will earn billions in Turkey As Trump is elected as the new president of the United States, a process that is affecting the whole world is triggered, and changes involving the economy sector are expected to take place in the coming days. In this context, it is expected that new equations will be drawn in the US-EU Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership and Turkey will play an active role in this process. For the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), which can deeply affect the destiny of the United States and Europe, Negotiations are running. TTIP, which is not regarded as a commercial agreement, is regarded as an "economic and political integration". If the agreement is signed, the world's economic map will be redrawn. Donald Trump's election as president of the United States and the rise of extreme right in Europe are seen as the main obstacles ahead of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) agreement in the negotiation process, stating that they are against free trade agreements. It is a matter of curiosity how the new political atmosphere emerging in Europe and the United States will affect the future of the future. According to a survey by CENTER FOR ECONOMIC POLICY RESEARCH (CEPR), the GDP in Europe is expected to increase between 68 and 119 billion euros in Europe and between 50 and 95 billion euros in the US by 2027. According to calculations made by the European Commission, the signing of the TTIP will increase the European economy by 120 billion euros and the US economy by 100 billion euros. Countries that will remain out of the agreement will suffer great losses. For example, it is estimated that the loss of Russia will be $ 44.9 billion, the Chinese economy $ 35.2 billion, and the Indian economy $ 35.3 billion. Where does Turkey come from? With Turkey joining the Customs Union in 1995, And the free movement of goods, services, capital and people between the EU and the EU. This contributed greatly to the development of economic relations between Turkey and the EU. As a matter of fact, Turkey's most important partners in foreign trade are Germany, England and other EU member countries. The most important reason for this is the convenience that the Customs Union has emerged in the field of trade. The Customs Union will be revised. Another important request of Turkey is revision of the Customs Union. For this purpose it was announced that the issue of the Customs Union between Turkey and the EU will be re-examined. Minister of Economy Nihat Zeybekçi, who attended the meeting titled "Turkey: Political-Economic Developments and the Future of the Customs Union" which was held in the month of the European Policy Studies (CEPS), announced that the Customs Union agreement would be revised. In 2017, negotiations will start. Mr. Zeybekci, Zeybekçi voiced that the revision of the Customs Union will start in 2017. Turkey, which wants to take measures against the EU-US negotiations, said that Turkey will be taking part in the decision-making mechanism and that it should be updated to the fields of agriculture, food services and public procurement. The aim is to eliminate the disadvantages of competition that Turkish goods may face if the agreement is signed and to ensure that the raw materials and semi-finished goods needed by Turkish industrialists are provided on more favorable terms. Turkey's policy The resulting table and the road map in front of Turkey can be summarized as follows: And after the announcement that it is against the TTIP, Trump will cancel the talks on the deal and Turkey will focus only on revising the EU and the Customs Union. If the negotiations on the free trade agreement continue during the Trump period, Turkey will try to take part in the negotiation table. The three possibilities can be listed as follows: - Turkey, like the Customs Union itself Sweden, Ireland and Ukraine, acting in coordination with countries such as Turkey, Turkey, TTIP
May sign a free trade agreement, which will be in line with the Customs Union, in parallel with the US directly. - Turkey may take new measures against free trade agreements, which the EU will sign with third parties.
