In 2009, Turkey earned $5.5 billion by exporting textiles and raw material, whereas garment exports accounted for 13.2 billion.

Considering the worldwide trade of textiles and apparels, it appears that a positive atmosphere to benefit Turkey has developed and exports have gathered momentum in the last few months, he added.
