Government Finance Statistics in Turkey

Prof. Dr. Necdet SAGLAM
Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences
Anadolu University, Turkey

The foundation of modern public financial reporting lies in the communication of financial information about the government’s activities to its citizens and their representatives in parliament. This information should refer to the activities of public administrators for the entire state, covering pre-determined periods. This is a key aspect of the accountability of the Government and its administration to parliament and the electorate more widely. It is
increasingly a requirement of international obligations as required by, for example, the IMF and the European Union.
