Tajikistan has 89 ginneries that normally operate for around 4 to 5 months a year, according to the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade.
 
From January to October 2013, Tajikistan exported 88.6 tons of cotton valued at US$ 147.8 million, recording a decline of 22 percent compared to 114.3 tons of exports worth US$ 168.4 million made during the corresponding period of last year, according to Customs.
 
Over 40 percent of Tajik cotton is exported to Turkey, followed by Russia with about 23 percent, China with 13 percent and Kazakhstan with 6.5 percent.
 
Cotton has always been among the leading export items for Tajikistan and cotton and cotton products accounted for 18.6 percent share in the country’s exports in 2012, earning US$ 244.8 million.
