Aegean Association of Readymade and Apparel Exporters (EHKÄ°B) Chair Emre KÄ±zÄ±lgÃ¼neÅŸler said that Turkey was one of Germany's biggest suppliers in clothes and apparel.
Pointing out the fact that Turkey was third in readymade garment exports, after China and Bangladesh, KÄ±zÄ±lgÃ¼neÅŸler said that they want to rank first by focusing more on the German market.

During the first eight months of the year, exports to Germany registered a 7 percent increase, reaching $9.6 billion. During the same period, Turkey's ready-to-wear industry saw 1 percent increase in exports as sales hit $2.1 billion.
