Mr.Umit VURAL's Statement:

The Stimulus Package Evangels New ITM Exhibitions
The textile industry being Turkey's locomotive industry from employment to exports is getting ready for a new rear up thanks to the recent stimulus package. This consequently has been an additional motivation and a driving force so as to organize new ITM exhibitions.

We hereby once more experience the joy and proud to open the doors of another edition of ITM. The most important trademarks, companies, products and also manufacturers will come together in this exhibition. It won't be exaggerated if I say that ITM 2012 has been the festival of the textile industry... ITM 2012 not only hosted local manufacturers but also important overseas suppliers. It is obvious that there has been visitor flow from Middle East and the Balkans.

The export figures of Turkey breaking a record every month since the beginning of 2012 is running for other successes with the textile industry. As of the export figure achieved as 12.6 Billion Dollars for the first quarter of 2012, it is not a surprise that the estimated export figure for the first four months realize as 16 Billion Dollars. The share of the textile industry within the export figures of the first quarter is around 4-5 Billion Dollars and this is enough to prove the importance of the textile industry for Turkey.

The Most Important Employment Source
On the other hand, the stimulus package recently announced by our government is quite important as this launched a new development attack in our country. It is highly important that a separate page is provided for textiles in this package. It is inevitable that textiles become the shining star of the industry in Turkey thanks to the investment supports, free lands, zero taxes etc. The Turkish textile industry has been the most important employment field during the global economic crisis and our country could overcome this tough era thanks to the textile industry.
