ANKARA (Reuters) - The Turkish economy will not suffer permanently from Friday's failed coup attempt despite a short-lived, downward impact on growth, Deputy Prime Minister Mehmet Simsek said on Monday.

Simsek said Turkey's macroeconomic fundamentals were solid and the government would swiftly shift its focus back to carrying out structural reforms.
