Cotton made in Africa focuses on China through workshops

Hamburg-based Cotton made in Africa (CmiA) initiative, which assists small cotton farmers in Africa in reaching international markets, organized two workshops in the Qingdao and Guangzhou provinces of China in August to introduce Chinese market operators to the organisation’s work, keeping in view the growing interest in China for African cotton.

More than 160 professionals, including ready-made garment and fabric producers, cotton traders, merchandisers and representatives of international textile companies, attended the workshops held in the first week of August, according to a CmiA press release. The initiative was founded in 2005.

Transparency and the integration of CmiA cotton into the supply chains of large retailers and brands were focus topics, said Christian Barthel, director of CmiA’s supply chain management.

The attendees perceived both workshops as a great kick-off for further such conferences to strengthen collaborations, the press release said. (DS)
