Turkey’s New Cutting Edge Laboratory
Turkey, one of the world’s major clothing exporters, has shown stable growth over the years. The country's close proximity to Europe attracts buyers from these countries. In 2010, Turkey was the second largest importer into the EU, just behind China.1 To expand the industry, the Turkey Ministry of Economy set the Turkish Exports Strategy for 2023 with a view to making Istanbul an international fashion, fair and trade centre.2
