'Brain drain' hits Ankara textile sector

As per chairman of a local industry association, all Anatolian cities and especially Turkey's capital city, Ankara, are encountering a problem of 'brain drain' as individuals with technical knowledge or proficiency are shifting base to Istanbul.

Said, Canip Karakus, Chairman, Ankara Textile Manufacturers' Association, “It is now more difficult to get hold of skilled personnel in Ankara.”

According to Karakus, with many of the banks and companies shifting their head offices to Istanbul, Ankara is slowly moving towards being a 'ghost city'. As more and more financial institutions are establishing base in Istanbul, the capital city, Ankara, is slowly losing out on its skilled manpower.

Though at first instance it may appear that Istanbul is at an advantage, but the fact remains that this growing shifting trend is cluttering the city. Karakus said that, “Initially it was only the banks that moved to Istanbul. But now following them are companies and even the white-collar workers.”

These institutes and firms are relocating with not only their names, but are also shifting along with their properties, continued Karakus. Noting that the shifting is causing increasing regional differences Karakus said that, this trend is devastating Anatolia.
