Sales for ITM 2016 completed
Money traffic in the world causes industries regionally either to rally or to restrain. It is anticipated that the 2016-2017 season will be extremely positive for the region. The depreciation of EU, particularly in the Euro region, against dollar compared to previous years will further highlight Euro as an exporter. It will also lead Europe to cut down purchases from the Far East. Lately, IMF has raised its forecast of growth of Turkey in 2016 from 3.2 to 3.8. The most clear indicator for this is the strong demand in ITM 2016. Sales for ITM 2016, the largest edition since it’s foundation, have been concluded by April. Strategic importance of Turkey in textile and apparel has a great share in the increase in the number of exhibitors. ITM 2016, growing by 55 per cent compared to ITM 2015, has further increased interest.
