Turkish textile companies in Paris
The Turkish textile industry, closed last year with export of 12.9 billion dollars, focused on efforts to increase its exports in 2022. Emphasizing business for production and employment, the Turkish textile industry with 212 Turkish companies participated in Premiere Vision Paris, one of the world's largest textile fairs on July 5-7.
Istanbul Textile and Raw Materials Exporters' Association (İTHİB) Board Member Natan Yakuppur stated the fair is of great importance for the promotion and value-added exports of the Turkish textile industry.
“WE EXPECT THE FAIR WILL BE VERY BENEFICIAL TO THE TURKISH TEXTILE INDUSTRY”
Emphasizing the fair was very energetic, Natan Yakuppur said, “As we can see, this year is a very energetic fair. We anticipate this will be very beneficial for the Turkish textile industry. Within our expectations, 15 billion dollars export might be planned. Many of our acquaintances and customers did visit our stands. Turkey was in a very important position, we got that from their orders. I hope it will be much better in the future. At the end of 2022, as the Turkish textile industry, we aim 15 billion dollars textile export.”
