Aug '17
An eight-member executive delegation of Cotton USA emphasised on the quality of cotton produced in US to China and Pakistan textile mill leaders during their visit to Dubai, UAE, and Qingdao, China for quality conferences. These conferences by Cotton Council International (CCI) were a platform to know about the benefits of using US cotton fibres.

The COTTON USA Quality Conference encouraged participants to 'Take a Closer Look at US Cotton'. The executive delegation participants gave presentations about sustainability, quality, transparency and premium value of US cotton to show how it can help textile mills prosper. The conference helped the delegates know the areas of improvement in the US cotton industry.

"The executive delegation will use what we learned to strengthen our industry’s commitment to supplying our textile mill customers with the cotton the world trusts," CCI president Eduardo Esteve said. 

The delegation’s first stop was Dubai, where the members had a private meeting with the leadership of the Pakistani textile industry in addition to speaking at the conference. Thirty-one representatives from 27 mills attended the Dubai conference, as well as nine exporter agents.

In China, the delegation participated in the second quality conference and visited a textile mill in Zibo, Shandong Province, met with government officials in Beijing (CNTAC and CCA). Fifty-five participants from 38 textile mills attended the conference in China. Among the 38 participating mills, 67 per cent were first-time attendees while the others had also attended the conference in 2016. The participating mills’ cotton usage in 2016 was 1.8 million bales and US cotton usage was 193,405 bales, which accounts for 26 per cent and 73 per cent of total China industry consumption respectively.

The 2017 Cotton USA executive delegation participants included Eduardo Esteve, CCI president; Jeff Johnson, ACSA chairman; Raymond Faus, ACSA vice-chairman; Keith Lucas, AMCOT; American Cotton Producers representatives Nathan Reed, board of directors, National Cotton Council) and Brent Nelson, secretary treasurer, Plains Cotton Growers Association; Matthew Ryan, ICE senior director, Global Soft Commodities; and Marc Lewkowitz, Supima president & CEO.
