Tashkent to host tenth Uzbek Cotton and Textile fair
Jul '14
Uzbekistan’s capital city of Tashkent is gearing up to host the tenth international Uzbek Cotton and Textile fair on October 13-14, 2014.
Since 2005, the Uzbek Government has been regularly organizing the fair in the country on annual basis. The fair is organized with the primary objective to optimize shipment of Uzbek cotton to the world market through establishing business contacts with international organizations and foreign companies dealing with the fiber.
The event also aims to familiarize the leading global manufacturers and end users of cotton fibers with Uzbek produced cotton and the latest innovations in the field of cotton, trade and logistics.
During the Cotton and Textile Fair, participants will have the opportunity to enter into long-term agreements with Uzbek exporters for future crops. The Cotton Fair stimulates further development of market mechanisms in cotton trading with the help of trend analysis and review of the future prospects of the global market. 
As part of the fair, “round tables” would be held to facilitate bilateral negotiations between exporters and consumers of Uzbek cotton. Also discussions on the domestic textile industry, availability of skilled labor and raw materials, advanced manufacturing, finance and banking, transport and engineering infrastructure will be held as part of the fair.
Thematic seminars, conferences and fashion shows (highlighting cotton apparel) will also be organized on the sidelines of the event.
The 2013 edition of Uzbek Cotton and Textile fair was attended by more than 1,000 representatives of cotton textile-related businesses from 40 countries.
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.
