GREECE: 30,000 Textile Jobs Lost In 10 Years
Data from the Greek Association of Knitting and Clothes Manufacturing Companies showed the losses were mainly due to firms relocating production to Bulgaria, Macedonia, Albania, Romania and Turkey.
Officials said up to 50,000 jobs were created in those countries as a result but the switch has left the Greek industry with only 10,000 workers this year compared to around 40,000 in 1993.
