The business groups also urged diplomatic efforts with the United States and an improvement in relations with the European Union, which is Turkey's major trading partner.

Erdogan's authoritarian hand has distanced the country from traditional Western allies and hit confidence. It also indicated it would lend money at interest rates above prevailing market rates, an effective tightening of monetary policy.
