Inadequate quality cotton imports concerns textile industry
21
Mar '08
There has been a rapid increase in Chinese textile and clothes processing trade and this is mainly due to insufficient supply of domestic cotton.

Textile and garment manufacturing enterprises are therefore showing urgency in importing cotton. However, the quality of these imported raw materials is not very dependable; besides, there was a shortage of nearly 80 percent of the shipments.

In 2007, Guangdong Customs inspected some 515 shipments of imported cotton having a total of 1,32,953 tons of cotton worth US $182.52 million. Of these, about 476 shipments of cotton were detected as having inferior quality raw material.

The unqualified rate reached 92.4 percent while the sum of claims resulting from the quality problem stood at about $8,32,000. Local entrepreneurs still fell short of 429 shipments.
