Turkey has been removed from the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) grey list, signifying a renewed confirmation of Turkey's reliability and stability within the international financial system. Experts emphasize that this removal will lead to an increase in investor inflows.

FATF General Assembly and Turkey's Efforts​

The FATF General Assembly, held between June 23-28, 2024, under Singapore's presidency, announced that both Turkey and Jamaica were removed from the grey list. This decision is a result of Turkey's efforts in combating money laundering and terrorism financing. Treasury and Finance Minister Mehmet Şimşek announced this achievement with the message "We succeeded." Vice President Cevdet Yılmaz stated that the confidence of international investors in Turkey has strengthened.

Possible Effects on the Economy and Investor Expectations​

The removal from the grey list will positively impact the economy. Investor interest in Turkey will increase, global trade relations will strengthen, and capital flow will accelerate. This will increase demand for Turkish lira assets, positively affecting the fight against inflation. Trade Minister Ömer Bolat highlighted that this development reinforces Turkey's international credibility and economic stability.
