Pakistani delegation on US cotton belt tour

The US is trying hard to increase cotton exports to Pakistan. As part of that exercise, the country is hosting representatives from 11 Pakistani companies who are on a tour of the US cotton belt.

The tour which will end on May 9, has been organized by the Cotton Council International (CCI), the National Cotton Council’s export promotions arm. It is intended to showcase the American cotton industry from the crop’s production to its marketing to the key textile executives from the 11 Pakistani companies.

During the current marketing year which ends on July 31, 2015, Pakistan ranks as the eighth largest U.S. cotton importer with current US export commitments to Pakistan of 335,000 bales — up from 169,000 bales in the 2013-14 marketing year.

This trade mission’s 11 participating Pakistani companies collectively are expected to consume about 1.8 million bales in this marketing year of which 184,000 bales, or 10 percent, will be US cotton.

CCI president Dahlen K. Hancock, a Ropesville, Texas, cotton producer, said, “We believe there is potential for even greater sales of US cotton to this growing market. This event will enable CCI to provide some high level Pakistani textile manufacturing executives a better understanding of U.S. raw cotton’s merits including our fibre’s superior quality and our industry’s outstanding reputation for timely delivery.” (SH)
