Turkey's annual textile, apparel exports approach $30 bn

Turkey's annual textile and apparel exports figure is approaching $30 billion, while $7.5 billion of this amount comes from Merter, an apparel manufacturing district in Istanbul that exports such products to 215 countries, according to the Merter Industrialists' and Businessmen's Association (MESIAD). Around 10,000 stores there employ nearly 100,000 people.

All medium and large textile and apparel manufacturers in Turkey have a store or showroom in Merter, a Turkish newspaper report quoted MESIAD chairman Yusuf Gecü as saying.

The number of employees in the production of these brands is much higher as 80 per cent of the players in Merter produce outside the region, he said.

Merter welcomes around 3,000 importers daily from 60 countries in the Middle East, Africa, the Turkic republics, the Far East, the Gulf nations, Russia, Europe and the United States. Out of Turkey's target to exceed $50 billion in exports by 2023, the region aims to make up $15 billion, he added (DS)
