Turkey’s employment rate in the textile industry during the 2005 and 2009 crisis period has been better than the countries in the European Union (EU), said Istanbul Textile and Raw Materials Exporters Association (ITHIB) president Ismail Gulle, at the recently concluded International Textiles Summit, held in the southeastern Turkish city of Kahramanmaras.
 
According to a statement issued by the Eastern Mediterranean Development Agency (DOGAKA), the ITHIB president said that crisis reveals the true situation of the countries, and Turkey’s textile sector managed very well during the crisis period of 2005 as well as 2009, when the textile industry unemployment rate in the country was lesser than that of countries in the EU.
 
At the summit, Governor of Kahramanmaras Sukru Kocatepe said that textiles is one of the major sectors in the country that contributes towards the development of the economy and Kahramanmaras is one of the cities that is locomotive in terms of development of textiles.
 
Istanbul Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KMTSO) chairman Kemal Karakucuk said that since 1980, in Turkey about 12 percent of investments in textiles sector come from Kahramanmaras city, especially in the textiles spinning and weaving sub-sectors.
 
At the three-day summit, organized by DOGAKA and KMTSO at the Kahramanmaras Sutcu Imam University (KSU), leading textile industrialists, entrepreneurs and government representatives discussed and made presentations on various topics related to the textiles sector including marketing, manufacturing, technology, human resources and energy issues.
