Turkey's Bursa exports $1.4bn textiles in Jan-Sept' 13
Oct '13
The textile exports from Turkey’s northwestern city of Bursa increased by 11.23 percent year-on-year and reached US$ 1.4 billion in the first nine months of 2013, according to Uludag Textile Exporters Association (UTIB).
The exports of textiles increased by 16.08 percent year-on-year in the month of September 2013, and amounted to US$ 112.4 million.
UTIB president Abraham Burkay said the rise in textile exports from the region is due to increase in participation at various international trade fairs.
Three of the major textile associations from Turkey attended the Heimtextil Fair in Moscow, Russia, which is the most important fair for the textile sector in the country, he added.
Mr. Burkay said all the textile exporting sectors from the country participated at the fair in Russia and exports to the Russian market touched US$ 1 billion in total, owing to these fairs.
The northwestern city of Bursa is a major hub for Turkey's textile and ready-to-wear sector. 
It exports textiles to nine free trade zones, 118 countries and autonomous regions, and ready-to-wear to seven free trade zones and 117 countries and autonomous regions around the world.
