National Cotton Council delegation to visit China

A National Cotton Council leadership team will visit China June 20-30 to see its cotton industry development and continue building a relationship with U.S. raw cotton's No. 1 customer.

NCC Vice Chairman Jay Hardwick, a Newellton, LA, producer, will lead the delegation, which will include producers, John Lindamood, Tiptonville, TN; C.B. “Chuck” Coley, Vienna, GA; and Eddie Smith, Floydada, TX; along with warehousemen, Trent Felton, Marianna, AR, and Dean Church, Lubbock, TX; ginner, Sid Brough, Edroy, TX; merchant, Cameron Austin, Dallas, TX; and cooperative official, Jarral Neeper, Bakersfield, CA. Dr. Gary Adams, NCC's vice president, Economics & Policy Analysis, will accompany the group.

“This visit continues a healthy dialogue and interaction between the U.S. and Chinese cotton industries,” Hardwick said.

“Learning more about China's cotton infrastructure, its standards, marketing practices, policies and their overall raw cotton needs will be invaluable in helping U.S. cotton continue to supply the type of fiber and service this rapidly growing country requires. Acquiring this in-depth understanding is essential to ensuring our industry's competitiveness in today's global marketplace.”

This visit will build on previous China cotton industry familiarization trips by U.S. cotton leaders, including a fact-finding effort in October 2006 and a June 2007 mission in which U.S. cotton leaders and USDA officials updated Chinese cotton industry officials and mill buyers on U.S. cotton quality.
