The project, funded by IPA II funds, aims at providing support and technical assistance services to the Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey and the Turkish Statistical Institute – TurkStat – for the design and implementation of the Turkish Household Finance and Consumption Survey (HFCS), compatible with European Central Bank Household Finance and Consumption Survey (ECB – HFCS).
