NCC team in Beijing to promote US cotton

Jun '07
A team of National Cotton Council leaders is visiting Beijing to update Chinese cotton industry officials on U.S. cotton quality and to ascertain the needs of this important U.S. raw cotton customer.

The NCC quality team will be led by Vice Chairman Larry McClendon, a Marianna, AR, producer/ginner during its June 19-30 trip. Other team members include Mike Alexander, a Colorado City, TX, producer; Dan Branton, a Leland, MS, producer, Dale Grounds, a Richardson, TX, merchant; Van Murphy, a Quitman, GA, ginner and Bill Norman, NCC Technical Services staff.

The team will be joined for portions of the trip by Darryl Earnest and James Knowlton, USDA/AMS/ Cotton Program; Mike Watson, Cotton Incorporated; and Leon Cui, USDA/ARS/SRRC.

The quality team visit is a follow-up to a high level U.S. cotton industry visit to China in October 2006. That trip to familiarize the U.S. delegation with China's market demands was part of the U.S. - China Cotton Leadership Exchange Program established by the NCC and the Chinese Cotton Association (CCA).

The visit also follows the November 2006 signing in Memphis of a “Memorandum of Understanding” between the NCC and CCA that promised cooperation between the countries' cotton industries.

McClendon said the U.S. cotton industry will relay to key Chinese officials its renewed commitment to protecting and enhancing U.S. cotton's reputation for producing high quality cotton, delivering it in a timely manner and honoring contracts.
