President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said that Turkey is entering a new period in the economy and judiciary and that parliament will prioritise new judiciary reform packages next year.

His comments, in a speech to a provincial congress of the governing Justice and Development (AK) Party, returned to a theme which he detailed on Wednesday, when he pledged a new economic growth strategy in the wake of surprise upheaval among economic policymakers.

"We are starting a new period of reforms in the economy and judiciary in our country," Erdogan said on Friday.

Noting that the priority is to immediately draw inflation rate to single-digits, the Turkish president said his government is launching "a new campaign focusing on stability, growth and employment."

Without giving details, Erdogan also said, "Those who attempted to meddle with Turkey through tutelage, terror, coup, political and social chaos have also attacked our economy."

He further stressed the necessity of meeting Turkey's 2023 goals, and said, "We are experiencing a period in which the fate of the [ruling] AK Party and the nation are integrated."
