Nearly 50 major textile brands and 150 suppliers were brought together under the same platform at the recently held ‘Textile Sector Cooperation Meeting’, organized by the Confederation of Businessmen and Industrialists of Turkey (TUSKON) in the Turkish city of Istanbul.
 
According to a statement issued by the Istanbul Exporters, Industrialists' and Businessmen's Association (IHSANDER), the meeting saw participation from textile industry giants as well as representatives from the Istanbul Industrialists' and Businessmen's Association (ISIAD), Istanbul Young Businessmen's Association (IGED), Flory Businessmen Association (FIAD) and IHSANDER.
 
Over 6,000 bilateral trade negotiations and various interviews were carried out between textile industrialists during the four-hour meeting, wherein the TUSKON also carried out trade negotiations worth US$ 250 million with leading textile industries in the country.
 
The objective of organizing the textile sector cooperation meeting was to make connections with textile enterprises that would result into business opportunities, increase the textile sector turnover as well as create more jobs in the sector.
 
Ismail Hakki, vice chairman of the TUSKON board of directors, said the textile sector cooperation meet is important for the sector’s growth as it presents opportunities for mergers and collaborations between textile enterprises operating in both domestic as well as foreign markets.
 
At the meeting, IHSANDER chairman Aykut Buyukeksi stressed that the textile sector of the country requires qualified labor force that would increase productivity in the sector. 
 
There are vocational training institutes in the country that provide training for creating skilled professionals for textiles sector, yet there is a shortage of quality labor force in the textile and garment sector of Turkey, he added.
 
The ‘Textile Sector Cooperation Meeting’ was organized with the intention of providing an opportunity to industrialists operating in the sector, to make business contacts, increase trade relations and exchange views and ideas to further develop the textile and apparel sector of the country.
