In the first seven months of 2010, China's total cotton imports achieved 1.714 million tons, up 97.7 percent year on year. In the first 11 months of the cotton season 2009-10, China's total imports of cotton completed 2.264 million tons, up 69.4 percent year on year.

Among importing countries, the United States remained overwhelmingly the largest source country, but its proportion declined slightly; cotton imports from Australia grew fast and bagged the second place, which was occupied by India earlier and Uzbekistan retained the third place.

Cotton imports from the US registered 77,200 tons in July, down 15 percent from the previous month, accounting for 45.7 percent of China's total imports; those from Australia fetched 23,000 tons, up 1.2 times from the previous month, accounting for 29.7 percent of China's total imports.
