Export performance of the Turkish apparel sector has been comparatively better than all the other sectors in the country, said the Turkey Clothing Manufacturers’ Association (TGSD) chairman Cem Negrin at the recently concluded 7th edition of the Istanbul Fashion-Apparel Conference held in the Turkish city of Istanbul.

Mr. Negrin said during the conference that the apparel sector’s exports amounted to US$ 1.5 billion in April 2014, whereas during the same period last year, the country’s apparel exports totaled $1.3 billion.

The two-day conference shall further contribute towards the growth of garment sector exports and Turkey would be able to achieve the set target of $18.4 billion apparel exports by the end of the year, he added.

Mr. Negrin also informed that the Japanese casual wear manufacturer and retailer Uniqlo has announced plans to open an office in Turkey and make the country its production base in order to increase trade in Europe.
