Sep '12
Tashkent, the capital city of Uzbekistan, would host the eighth International Cotton and Textile Fair on October 17 and 18, the Ministry of External Relations, Investment and Trade said.
 
Since 2005, Uzbek Government has been regularly organizing the fair in the country on annual basis in association with the International Cotton Advisory Committee (ICAC). 
 
Those participating in the fair would get a chance to have a look at the samples of Uzbek cotton fibre and assess the quality of the same, and also to strike deals for selected items offered by Uzbekistan’s leading textile firms.
 
During last year’s event, buyers placed contracts for over 600,000 tons of Uzbek cotton fibre, while the textile industry of the country bagged export orders worth over half a billion dollars.
 
The event would also extend a platform for discussing the issues facing the cotton industry and its global prospects. 
 
Global industry experts would deliver speeches on the prospects of global cotton market, demand-supply scenario of cotton textile market, the state and prospects of cotton production and marketing in Uzbekistan, investment climate, new technologies, cotton competitiveness and role of foreign investors in development of the Uzbek cotton and textile industry.
 
Uzbekistan each year produces nearly 3.5 million tons of raw cotton.
 
About 95 percent of the cotton produced by the country is of medium varieties with fibre length of 32-33 mm, while the rest is long fibre cotton of length 36-39 mm.
