Turkey's November vehicle production rose 30% year-on-year, the country's automotive association said, but, in the 11 month period from January to November, output was down 30%, it added.

There are indications that Turkey's economy is starting to recover from deep recession although the central bank has warned the upturn will be slow and gradual.

Earlier this year the government introduced temporary sales tax cuts on vehicles to try and support its key auto manufacturing industry.
