Textile sector has to set new standards for next level of progress
Apr '09
Turkey has been labeled as the land where "East meets West" due to its unique positioning, and having road access to the European markets.

Turkey exports 44.5% of its textile products to EU countries, most notably Italy, Germany, and Romania. Outside the EU, Russia is still a significant market for Turkish apparel.

The major strength of the industry is its richness in raw materials, its geographic proximity to main markets like EU, and Russia, access to qualified and educated work force, and international positive recognition in terms of quality, environment and human health.

The country ranks sixth in the world for cotton production and is also a significant producer of synthetic and artificial fibers. It is a leading producer of organic cotton.

Textile industry in Turkey needs to implement a new set of standards based on the triple bottom line of economic, social, and environmental sustainability. The engine for rapid growth is the fast growth of demand in the EU countries, the US, and Japan.

Organic cotton represents a window for Turkey to continue a significant contribution to its textile industry, and also to raise its image and enable the garment industry to move up to a higher class.
