KEY ELEMENT OF THE ECONOMY: YARN
Issued by Bülent Ünal, TÜYAP Executive Board Chairman.
The textile sector is the leading indispensable sector in Turkish industry under any circumstances. From yarn to weaving, knitting and ready-to-wear clothing, it is a business where millions of people earn a living. The majority of those employed are women and most of them have no other qualifications. The first link of the professional chain, which is very important for the national economy, is yarn. There is huge international competition in this business today. This competition is quite conspicuous both in the production and marketing of yarn.
