Textile industry grapples with China challenge

Abstract:
Bülent Uygun, secretary general of the Denizli Chamber of Industry, said that the EU and participants at the meeting were trying to 'save' the region's industry as it is in danger in the face of China's textile production and export capabilities. Quotas on China will expire in 2008. He explained that the solution lays in the creation of high value-added products such as technical textiles, geotextiles (establishment of which is in progress) and textiles that make use of nanotechnology. "There's no future in conventional textiles for Europe and Turkey. We shouldn't insist on producing conventional products," he said. "We are trying to manufacture technological textiles but we are slow."
