Turkmenistan would host the second international exhibition-fair of cotton products in Sergi Kosgi exhibition palace in Ashgabat on November 24 and 25, the state agency for cotton, Turkmenpagta, has announced.
 
The exhibition would be organized by the State Commodity and Raw-materials Exchange of Turkmenistan and State Chamber of Commodity and Industry, along with other organizers.
 
The exhibition would greatly focus on drawing higher investment in the country’s cotton production sector and cotton industry, while promoting research activities. Besides, it would also emphasize on promoting Turkmen cotton in world market.
 
The expo would also host a seminar on real time issues concerning development of cotton and textile industry. Besides, long-term cooperation issues with global organizations and firms – the ultimate consumers of cotton – would also be discussed at meetings to be held during the expo.
 
Cotton cultivation is undertaken in five regions of Turkmenistan – Mari, Balkan, Akhal, Lebap and Dashoghuz. While all five regions support production of medium staple cotton of Upland kind, long staple cotton of Pima variety is grown only in Akhal and Mari regions.
 
The cotton harvesting season in the country runs from August to October. In the course of the harvesting campaign launched on August 1 this year, Turkmenistan is expected to reap around 1.109 million tons of raw cotton, from the total cultivated area of 550,000 hectares. The country produced 1.1 million tons of cotton during last season.
 
Domestically produced cotton is sold through Chamber of Commodities and Industry. China, South Korea, Iran, the UK, Turkey, Russia, Indonesia, Ukraine, the Baltic countries and Singapore are Turkmenistan’s long-established cotton export destinations.
 
Turkmenpagta, which functions as a production and agricultural complex, extends development assistance to Turkmenistan’s cotton industry and also frames general directions for it.
