The organizers of the exhibition would also host a conference on ‘Cotton production in Turkmenistan and the world market’, which will address the pressing issues faced by world cotton and textile industry, as well as Turkmen cotton industry.
The conference would also address the issues of promotion of Turkmen cotton products in the world market, the current challenges faced in research and investment in the cotton producing sector and the cotton processing industry of Turkmenistan.
Last month, the country launched an agricultural campaign for the harvest of cotton, and is expecting at least 1.5 million tons of cotton production this season.
Cotton is grown in five Turkmen provinces: Akhal, Mary, Lebap, Dashoguz and Balkan, and the harvesting is carried out from August to October.
