Mr. Zhong Shan, the Deputy Commerce minister said on Wednesday that China's exports will slow during the first half of the year and that the outlook for the second half of the year is still not optimistic.

“India's cotton exports are likely to shrink 40% from a government estimate of 5 million bales for the marketing year ending Sept. 30, due to weak demand and lower output, industry officials said Wednesday, according to a Dow Jones report. A sharp hike in support prices has led to an increase in cotton prices, making Indian exports costly, industry officials said. One official from the South India Cotton Association was quoted as saying, "I don't think anything beyond 3 million bales of exports is a reality this year.” In 2007-08, India, the world's second-largest cotton producer, exported 8.5 million (170 kg.) bales of cotton.
