Attributing the Indian cotton yarn sector slowdown to the US-China trade war, textiles minister Smriti Irani recently assured stakeholders of finding a solution to the problem. She was addressing Indian Cotton Conference 2019 organised by Indian Cotton Association Ltd (ICAL). The event focused on branding India as the most potential organic cotton-producing country.

Commerce ministry officials have dedicated themselves to finding a solution, she said.

The conference suggested that cotton brand needs a cotton development board that can help enhance the stakeholders' image and promote usage of cotton.
