Editorial: Textiles and Apparel Will Play a Major Role in Helping Turkey to Meet Ambitious Export Targets
published in Issue 157, August 2012  


The Turkish economy has been growing at a rapid pace in recent years. Indeed, Turkey's gross domestic product (GDP) grew by an impressive 8.5% in 2011 alone. By 2050, the country's economy is predicted to become the third largest in Europe -- and the ninth largest in the world. Turkey's textile and apparel industry is set to play an important role in helping the country to achieve this ranking and meet the government's ambitious export target of US$500 bn for 2023. Rapid investment in spinning, weaving and knitting has resulted in an industry which produces yarns and fabrics that meet international quality standards. The capacity to produce such products, coupled with Turkey's geographical proximity to major export markets, puts the country in a strong position to promote exports and attract inward foreign direct investment (FDI). In this report, Robin Anson examines how Turkey's textile and apparel industry aims to help the country meet its export target for 2023. In addition, he provides valuable insight and analysis of statistical data concerning the country's key export products. This report is essential reading for anyone wanting to find out about the future of Turkey's textile and apparel industry, and the important role it is set to play in global terms and in helping to grow the Turkish economy.

This is what our customers say:
"In 1987 I was working as a graduate-trainee in the buying teams at Marks & Spencer in London. I was asked to prepare a paper on the textile and clothing industry in Italy. In my search for information I discovered Textile Outlook International. The quality of information that this publication provided was nothing short of excellent. As I look back over the past 25 years, there have been several times that I've turned to the publications of Textiles Intelligence. They have always been of the highest quality and provided me with the opportunity to talk with confidence about the global textile & clothing industries. Today, I'm the Chief Supply Office for Umbro, a wholly owned subsidiary of Nike Inc. As I look back, of course there are many factors that have helped me to get to where I am today. I've no doubt that the information provided by Textiles Intelligence has been a contributory factor."
