With the Regional Industrial Collaboration in Cotton Fibre Manufacturing Project which was developed to secure competitiveness in textile sector and eliminate production challenges in Şanlıurfa and Diyarbakır provinces, a new system has been built to improve quality standards of production.
All manufacturers of the region are expected to reach the standards specified in the Communiqué on the transition to the single bale system published by the Ministry of Economy in 2009.
Provided that the cotton ginning and pressing enterprises improve their storages with their own means, they will be able to utilise this system to be established under the Project and benefit from the GAP International Agricultural Research and Training Centre accredited fibre quality analysis centre. Sampling kits will be put in cotton ginning pressing enterprises to take samples from each bail manufactured, and bails will be separately barcoded. Thus, the transition to the single bail system will have been ensured thanks to the project.
After the samples taken are analysed in the laboratories and their quality features are identified, product information will be published on the web portal. Thread and weaving enterprises will be able to order via this portal from the suppliers that have the cotton fibre of the desired quality. This way, quality and price conflicts among the parties will be eliminated. During the project, a minimum of 50 enterprises is expected to register on the web portal and use this system.
The project is expected to provide services to approximately 300 cotton ginners outside Diyarbakır, Şanlıurfa, and contribute to regional development in the long term including Batman and Mardin.
