TURKEY: Textile sector is a driving force, statistical report

ANKARA: The textile industry, combined with apparel sector, has long been one of the most important components of the Turkish economy, accounts for 10 percent of the country's GNP, 26 percent of total exports and represents 20 percent of employment.

Turkey’s textile and clothing industry has developed rapidly over the past 20 years, thanks to the availability of home grown cotton and a relatively cheap and skilled labour force. The sector also enjoys a good geographical location, being close to Europe but also well placed to exploit neighbouring markets in Russia, Central Asia and the Middle East.

The industry has developed a strong technological ability—due, in part, to the significant amount of contract work it has undertaken for European and US brands.

The Turkish textile sector has a premium position in the EU by its integrated infrastructure, adequate human resources and production and export experience.

Textile sector is the driving force in the Turkish export industry and it has also become one of the key players in the world over the years.

The export amount of the industry has reached to the level of USD 18.86 billion in 2005.

But the country is not only an exporter in the world, but also it is a reliable importer. Total import of the industry reached USD 6.68 billion in 2005. Most of the imports are textile commodities such as fibres, yarns, fabrics, etc.
