Raw cotton exports fetched $49.943 million in the three-month period, showing a drop of 23.9 percent compared to exports of $65.631 million made during the corresponding quarter of last year. Likewise, cotton yarn exports fell by 21.78 percent to $463.216 million, as against exports of $592.185 million made during the same period last year.
