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.
