    Turkey will emerge as the strongest economy in Europe by 2050, Turkish President Abdullah Gul said on Saturday.

    ANKARA, March 9 (RIA Novosti) - Turkey will emerge as the strongest economy in Europe by 2050, Turkish President Abdullah Gul said on Saturday.

    Turkey is similar to Sweden, while many economic indicators, such as growth, unemployment and budget deficit are better than in the EU, Gul said in an interview with Swedish daily Dagens Nyheter, two day before his official visit to Stockholm.

    Gül will visit Sweden at the invitation of King Carl XVI Gustaf in the first ever state visit by a Turkish head of state to the country.

    According to Anatolia News Agency, Gul will attend the opening ceremony of the Stockholm University Institute for Turkish Studies. During his two-day visit, he will address the Swedish parliament.

    Gül will be accompanied by a delegation of more than 100 businessmen.
