comment Turkey delivered more jeans to the European Community in 2017 than in 2013. 84,2 Mio jeans in 2017 compared to 56,7 in 2013. Due to the political tensions between Turkey and the EU and the cost of production this might change as there are companies who switched from Turkey to other countries. Anyway Turkey increased its deliveries by 49%.
