5th Sourcing USA defines future directions for global cotton
07
Mar '09
The fifth Sourcing USA Summit gathered 410 representatives of the cotton industry for a three-day meeting that may serve to redefine global direction and foster enhanced collaboration along the cotton supply chain.

The Summit, presented jointly by CCI and Cotton Incorporated and funded by the U.S. cotton industry and USDA, has for the past 11 years brought together global leaders along the cotton supply chain for an open exchange of ideas. Anchoring this year's conference was an assessment by the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) that applied that organization's Seven Revolutions model to the entire cotton industry.

Summit Business Forums focused on “Cotton's Revolutions”—resources, technology and governance—as well as strategic thinking, agricultural research, textile innovations and marketing data to help companies throughout the supply chain survive and prosper during these difficult economic times. Preliminary survey results show that about 80 percent of Summit attendees said the forums provided substantive new information.
