The International Cotton Advisory Committee (ICAC) will hold its 75th plenary meeting with the theme 'Emerging Dynamics in Cotton: Enhancing Sustainability in the Cotton Value Chain' in Pakistan from October 30, 2016.

Registration for the six-day event in Islamabad is already underway, ICAC said.

The agenda of the meeting features seven open sessions, six breakout sessions, plenary sessions and meetings of ICAC working groups on matters of interest to members and their cotton sectors.

The topics for seven open sessions will be – Sustaining Cotton Growth: Incorporating Climate Dynamics, World Cotton Market Report, Reducing the Water Footprint of Cotton, Overcoming Textile Industry Challenges, Technical Seminar: Emerging Pests in Cotton and their Control, The Role of the Public Sector in the Cotton Industry, and Challenges to Cotton: Confronting Inter-fibre Competition.

Breakout sessions will discuss topics such as Reducing Contamination in Picking & Handling, Enhancing Efficiency in the Cotton Value Chain, New Challenges to Cotton: The Perspective of Developing Countries, Best Practices in Cotton Ginning, Modern Practices in Instrument Testing, and Developments in the Transfer of Technology.

Plenary meetings of the ICAC provide a forum for discussion of international issues of importance to the world cotton industry, and provide opportunities for industry and government leaders to consult on matters of mutual concern.

The 74th plenary meeting, organised last year by the Office of the Textiles Commissioner, Mumbai along with Cotton Corporation of India, Cotton Association of India and the Confederation of Indian Textile Industry, under the theme 'From Farm to Fabric: The Many Faces of Cotton' was attended by 500 delegates from 50 countries across the world.
