December exports rose 1.1 per cent year-on-year to $13.14 billion, TIM said.

TIM releases its figures almost a month before the state statistics office, and the two sets of data usually match.

Meanwhile, retail prices in Istanbul, Turkey's largest city, rose 0.17 per cent month-on-month in December and wholesale prices fell 0.44 per cent, the Chamber of Commerce said on Thursday.

In 2014 prices leapt 11.14 per cent in Istanbul, which is home to one fifth of Turkey's population. The central bank has set a national medium-term inflation target of 5 per cent.  – Reuters
