Internet shopping in Turkey grew 52 percent in value, to 17 billion liras ($9.5 billion), in the first nine months of 2011, compared with the year-earlier period, according to Soner Canko, who heads the Interbank Card Center that monitors credit-card spending in the country.

Turkey’s e-commerce is “one of the fastest-growing in the world,” Canko said in an e-mailed statement today. The number of transactions rose 37 percent to 91.7 million in the nine months, he said.
