Exports which were recorded by the Denizli Exporters Association (DENIB) amounted to 224 million USD in August. This figure is the highest value since 1994 when DENIB's first export figures were announced. The performance we showed in August was a holiday gift for all of us. Previously, we had the highest export value of 223 million USD in November of 2013..
Over the past two years, we have been very close to the effects of the recession in the global economy and the shrinking world commodity trade. However, I would like to emphasize that; the moderate climate dominating the markets and the world economy are giving strong signals for renewed growth and it is a clue to positive scenarios and new records for the future.
LOCOMOTIVE SECTOR TEXTILE AND APPAREL
The share of our textile and apparel exports, which increased by 5% in August to 133 million USD, is about 60% in our total exports. The largest proportion of this sector is made up of towels, bathrobes, sheets and bed linen. August exports of these product groups amounted to 82 million USD.
Moreover; strong exports continue to be experienced in the sectors of electricity, electronics, mining, iron and nonferrous metals and food. The increase in the sector diversity in our export is hope and encouragement for the future..
As Exporters from Denizli, we believe that we will continue to contribute to our country's economy by continuing our activity in existing markets as well as present in new markets. We once again thank all our exporters for the export record we broke in August.
