International Cotton Association (ICA), world's leading cotton trade association and arbitral body promoting safe trading and protecting the cotton trades has recently held an annual training programme, 'Complete Cotton' benefiting attendees in Liverpool, UK, where 19 industry experts delivered a series of 20 training modules that covered all aspects of the cotton industry.

“It has been a pleasure to host another Complete Cotton. The calibre of the presenters and the knowledge and experience they impart is fantastic. That is why this course remains one of the industry's top rated programmes. It has provided an excellent grounding for many of today's key players in the cotton world and I am sure that the delegates on this year's course will go on to great things within our industry,” said Kai Hughes, ICA managing director.

From cotton growing to spinning and everything else in between, 27 delegates from all sectors of the global cotton industry attended the 10 day training programme.

“And that is why we want to promote Complete Cotton right across the supply chain. So if you are involved in cotton, in whatever shape or form, my advice is to sign up for next year's course, I promise you will not regret it,” added Hughes.

“Complete Cotton was a great learning experience for me. The seminars were very informative and I was very fortunate to make friends for life, who are working in the same industry as me. I would recommend the course to anyone engaged in the cotton industry and would also urge the ICA to market the course to growers, ginners and spinners in all parts of the world, particularly in textile rich countries such as Pakistan,” said Sharik Bashir, a spinner from Pakistan based Suraj Cotton Mills.

“I joined the course with the expectation of widening my knowledge on all aspects of the cotton business and with the intention of meeting new people in the cotton world. After 10 days of intense training I can say I am confident the friendships will last over the years, while we grow in our respective careers. I would say the course is very well structured with knowledgeable speakers and plenty of social events that allow the participants to learn while having fun,” explained Susana Rodriguez from RCMA Group.
