Sri Lankan apparel sector studies Turkish model

Sri Lankan apparel industry is studying the feasibility of following Turkish model to achieve the Government-set target of US$ 5 billion in revenues by 2015.

Mr. Rohan Abeykoon, immediate-past chairman of the Sri Lankan Apparel Exporters Association, said they have analysed the Turkish model and found it to be a good system to set standards, particularly in view of the trade that Turkish apparel industry enjoys in spite of enduring three-times higher production costs than the cost borne by the Sri Lankan garment sector.

Speaking at the annual general meeting of the association, Mr. Abeykoon said the Turkish clothing sector has a greater concentration of small and medium enterprises. These enterprises run with support of large enterprises, especially in marketing and promotion of their products.Read more
