The project Idea
Increasing competition from emerging economies and the global economic downturn are resulting in severe pressure on textile enterprises in Europe. The Greek Textile industry was for decades the engine of the economic development of the country.
However, during last years the Greek textile companies have confronted serious challenges. According to recent statistical data, the employees in the Greek textile industry are estimated to be around twenty five thousand (25.000) and the operating companies are estimated to be more than two thousand (2.000).
Textile and apparel industry in Bulgaria is the second most important industry (after tourism) for the country’s economy. This industry includes around 3.000 small and medium companies, which employ approximately 170.000 people.
