The National Cotton Council (NCC) of America is set to work with US agriculture secretary appointee, Tom Vilsack, on matters ranging from sustainable, climate smart agriculture to international trade opportunities and the farm safety net. NCC serves as the unifying force in working with various policymakers to ensure cotton’s interests are heard.

The NCC is also optimistic about working with Katherine Tai, an attorney with the House Ways and Means Committee who incoming President Biden has nominated to be US Trade Representative (USTR) for his administration. Tai is the former chief counsel on China trade enforcement at the Office of USTR during the Obama administration. The cotton and textile industries are acutely focused on the importance of fair and reciprocal trading relationships that offer opportunities for the cotton industry to expand exports of cotton fibre, yarn, and fabrics, according to a press release by NCC.

“The US cotton industry believes that Vilsack has the credentials necessary to help restore the economic health of our nation’s rural sector that has suffered during the COVID-19 pandemic. We also are optimistic he will work to ensure that Sunbelt farmers’ needs are fairly considered in USDA policy decisions,” NCC chairman Kent Fountain, a Georgia cotton producer and ginner said.

The NCC’s mission is ensuring the industry’s seven segments’ ability to compete effectively and profitably in the raw cotton, oilseed and US-manufactured product markets at home and abroad.
