EDANA Board to meet local nonwoven producers in Istanbul

Mar '10
The EDANA Board of Directors will meet with nonwoven producers in Istanbul in April, as part of its objective to engage local markets in the ongoing development of the nonwovens and related industries.

EDANA recognises the importance of trade to both the Turkish, and broader European nonwovens markets, and strongly supports fair and free trade for businesses operating across the globe. With approximately 12% market share for the import of nonwovens into and export to the European Union markets, EDANA has confidence in the long-term and continued growth of the country's nonwovens market and its contribution to the industry's development.

“Turkey is an important part of our global business strategy, and we are committed to supporting the development of the market in any way possible” said Pierre Wiertz, General Manager of EDANA. EDANA is committed to growing its support of companies, based on local demands and as out member base continues to grow. This is especially important in growth markets like Turkey, as their trade balance with Europe and other regions rises, and their economy transitions to become increasingly open to international trade. This has been seen across Turkey, with its increasing openness to international trade, as evidenced by its commitments to the World Trade Organisation (WTO) and free trade agreements with the European Free Trade Association (EFTA).

“Turkey's position, linking Europe and Asia is an advantage in reaching consumers in Europe, Russia, Central Asia, the Middle East and Africa, and we look forward to seeing per capita nonwovens consumption figures in the region catching up with those in Western Europe.” said Wiertz.

This visit will be an opportunity for an exchange of views our members, and other nonwovens companies on the status and perspective for the industry, the trade between Turkey and the EU, the services EDANA is offering to support the continued and long-term growth of the Turkish nonwovens industries, and the fair and free trade between Turkey and the European Union.
