Bumper harvest attributes to high cotton exports

Available statistics show that Pakistan, in October, recorded an export of 40,000 cotton bales and experts are citing reasons for such scores as credit squeeze by local banks, devaluation of local currency against US Dollar and cheapest available cotton in the world market.

Mr Ghulam Rabbani, Director on Board of Karachi Cotton Association (KCA), said that Pakistani cotton has a good demand in the world market; especially in the Far Eastern Markets various businesses were done.

The KCA Director, while speaking to Fibre2fashion said, "Increase in the export volumes during October 2008 was also due to higher arrival of cotton at the peak of the 2008/09 harvest season. According to the Pakistan Cotton Ginners' Association (PCGA), the arrivals up to October 15 were higher than the last season at this time.”

During this period, Bangladesh emerged as the key market for Pakistani cotton exports. Countries from Far East and India besides Indonesia, Malaysia and Hong Kong followed the suit.

The present trade volume of Bangladesh and Pakistan has reached US $350 million, which includes jute and cotton among other fabric and textile product.

However, due to the absence of regular direct liner shipping service between Pakistan and Bangladesh, the cotton exporters were spending around $700 more on per container, said Mr Rabbani.

He further mentioned that the direct shipping links are necessary as in near future robust growth of textile and cotton exports between Pakistan to Bangladesh is expected.
