The International Cotton Association (ICA) has welcomed the election of Salman Ispahani of Bangladesh-based Pahartali Textile and Hosiery Mills, as its president for the financial year 2017-18. With an unprecedented level of experience and insight from the spinning sector of Bangladesh, Ispahani was elected to the association's board of directors in 2013.

Ispahani received the presidential medial from the association's immediate past president Jürg Reinhart at the ICA annual trade event in Singapore.

"I am very humbled and honoured to have been entrusted with this huge responsibility. It perhaps means even more to me as I come in as a spinner, from Bangladesh, to what many spinners have always called a ‘Merchants Club’. Yet I am here, proof that a spinner can make it to the very top of the ICA, proof that its outlook is becoming increasingly global and inclusive," said Ispahani.

"I will build on this and encourage ever more transparency and closer liaison with our important growing markets in Vietnam, Indonesia and the sub-continent; without neglecting our other markets. I will ensure that we engage with governments and national trade bodies in all of these places to spread the ICA vision," said Ispahani talking about his plans to expand the reach of ICA.

"There is a need for continued strategic operations and innovation at ICA," said Reinhart in his farewell speech. Further, he also thanked the ICA Board, secretariat and members for their support and collaboration in driving the organisation forward throughout his presidency. (RR)
