Turkish lira stays hot with 1% rally vs dollar



ISTANBUL, June 11 (Reuters) - Turkey's lira continued a strong rebound from record lows last week with a near 1% rally on Friday, as Finance Minister Lutfi Elvan emphasized the battle against double-digit inflation and as data showed industrial production remained strong in April.

The currency TRYTOM=D3 had strengthened to 8.36 versus the dollar at 0717 GMT after having firmed in four of the last five trading days. Elvan said the fight against inflation, near 17%, "is one that must be won for the future of the country."

The lira touched an all-time low of 8.88 last week.
