The upcoming Textile City to be established in the southeastern Turkish city of Diyarbakir would create employment for around 7,500 people in the region once it starts operation, as per the Southeastern Textile Industry and Businessmen Association (GUNTIAD).

According to a statement issued by GUNTIAD, the construction of the Textile City, which aims to bring together textile manufacturers and exporters in the city together to work towards reviving the sector, is expected to begin within the next few months.

Ilhan Karakoyun, secretary-general of GUNTIAD, said that the Textile Industrial Estate of GUNTIAD is on a search for a perfect site for the project and has up till now identified the Elazig area in the city to be the most suitable for establishing the Textile City.

Mr. Karakoyun informed that the Textile City would be established with the support of the Karacadag Development Agency, and the Diyarbakir Metropolitan Municipality has already approved the zoning plan for the construction of the project.

According to the GUNTIAD official, over 500 acres of land is required for the establishment of the Textile City, which would be constructed in three stages, creating employment for about 120 people in the region during the construction phase.

The project is expected to contribute significantly towards reduction of unemployment in the city, especially creating jobs for women, as well as help develop the textile industry of the region and revive the economy, he added.

According to the GUNTIAD official, construction of the Textile City is anticipated to be completed by the end of this year, and operations are expected to begin by early 2015.
