Zimbabwe has sought China's expertise in producing quality cotton for export purpose. Cotton growers of Zimbabwe will receive technical advice from Chinese companies under the projected agreement between the two countries. The Chinese companies will assist farmers to attain increased quality yields by imparting them suitable training.

Mr. Xin Shunkang, Beijing Ambassador in Harare and China National Textile and Apparel Council's representatives explained their proposals to the Agriculture, Mechanization and Irrigation Development Minister, Mr. Joseph Made.

Ambassador, Mr. Xin said that China wishes to lend a hand to cotton growers for managing their crop to achieve high quality yields per unit area. China has chalked out a long strategic plan of five to 15 years, said Mr. Xin, who further informed that the field visits in different cotton growing areas offered them idea about the potential of farmers for improving yields and quality.

The country intends to expand the area under cotton from one to 1.5 million hectares to produce between 600,000 to one million tons of cotton lint. It has been witnessing plunge in cotton production since last couple of years on account of unavailability of raw materials at affordable prices.

This forced a number of cotton growers to grow tobacco due to its better monetary returns. Along with Zimbabwe; United States, Egypt, Sudan and Australia are the other sources from where China imports cotton.
