According to the National Bureau of Statistics, in January-May 2009, the cotton textile industry realized total profits of 11.608 billion Yuan, down 2.55 percent from the same period last year.

The release plan of 1,523,000 tons of cotton reserves implemented by the state has achieved more than 80 percent of its target and sales price now, shows a slight downward trend.
