Number of Turkish companies have terminate their imports agreements with the Egyptian ready-made garments companies in Port Said Free Zone after the Turkish recent economic crisis according to  Readymade Garments Export Council Of Egypt, Chairman, Magdy Tolba.

He told Amwal Al Ghad that the Turkish companies have informed its Egyptan counterparts about deleting their contracts to import readymade garments in the light of its availability in the Turkish markets with competitive prices after the recent decline in the price of Lira.
