Stating that Turkeyâ€™s leather exports have increased by 9 percent in the January-October period of 2012 compared to previous year, Chairman of the Leather Garment Manufacturersâ€™ Association of Turkey (TDKD) Mehmet Ali Dinc said that Turkish leather companies have also entered the local areas in China, despite the recession in European markets.
â€œThe Turkish leather has become a brand in Russia. They even put up a notice on their shop-windows, indicating that they sell not Chinese, but Turkish leather. We need to achieve the same success in Europe as well. We aim to increase our leather exports by 20-25 percent in 2013,â€ Dinc said.
