This study analyses the efficiency of the Turkish bank system over the period 2000-2005. The estimation shows that inefficiency decreases over the period under consideration and the analysis unambiguously indicates that the Turkish banking system has a large potential for improvement. The state banks appear to reduce their costs more comfortably than the private banks. The results also suggest that the restructuring programme that started in 2001 appears to have transformed the state-banks into the more efficient and profitable institutions.
