President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that sportswear giant Nike will set up a factory in the eastern Turkish province of Agri.
The factory will provide employment to Turkish people. Nike is coming to Agri to establish a factory and provide employment to 5,000 people.
Taking its name from an ancient Greek goddess of victory, Nike is sponsoring many football teams including national teams of Brazil, England and France as well as Spanish club Barcelona.
Also, Nike has been the official apparel supplier for NBA — the American top-tier basketball league — since July 2017.
It currently sponsors Turkey’s national football team, Istanbul-based football club Galatasaray and basketball heavyweights Fenerbahce Beko.
