“To Be Among the ‘Top 10 Countries’…”

For the past few years, the Turkish economy has continued to be one of the most stable growing economies globally. With the support of around 6 million Turkish businesspeople residing abroad, it aims to reach its $500 billion export target to be among the “top 10 countries.” The Turkish diaspora, which includes Turks living abroad, is actively contributing to both economic and lobbying activities. Government officials, emphasizing the significance of this diaspora, are conducting related efforts.

Among this diaspora are our garment industry leaders who rank in the top 3 in exports domestically. During two international trips last month to Brazil and Saudi Arabia, we gained positive impressions that our country and economy are strengthening and growing. We want to underline the need for more organized efforts to contribute to our region and increase this contribution.

Particularly at international fairs and conferences, both domestic and foreign, where we actively participate, we closely observe the success of our garment industry. We are pleased to understand the importance of attending these events and note that we are now receiving significant attention from Europeans. Many of our textile manufacturers have been producing on a subcontracting basis for international brands for years. Over the last 7-8 years, partnerships and collaborations have been added to this. These developments are a source of pride for us.

The companies achieving this success are ahead of others in the institutionalization process that encompasses planning, research, design, production, control, logistics, marketing, branding, presentation, and sales. This superiority makes us think once again about the importance and necessity of institutionalization.

As professionals and NGOs, we want to contribute and increase our contributions to success by exchanging views, informing, and raising awareness among our members and colleagues. Ensuring this and creating role models are important goals for our activities. We are pleased to see that our exemplary association, with solidarity among its management and members, and its landscaping work and relations with local authorities, serves as an example. We continue to closely follow issues related to work permits for foreign workers and the institutionalization of our industries.

In the meantime, our region’s renewal and landscaping project will be completed with facade renewal works starting after the completion of ongoing infrastructure works. We want to reiterate our belief that valuable members and traders will adapt to this renewal while being extremely sensitive to traffic and parking issues, recognizing that every vehicle parked on the streets involves the right of others.

We appreciate your support once again.
