Chinese govt to allocate cotton import quotas

15
May '10
The Chinese government is expected to shortly allocate cotton import quotas in a bid to improve supply and restrict flare-up in cotton prices.

According to informed sources, the cotton import quotas are expected to reach 1.1 million tons. This volume is expected to stabilize supply in the short-term.

Since the last quarter of the previous year, cotton prices in the domestic and global markets have shot up by 35-40 percent, mainly due to recovery in demand.

China, apart from being the biggest producer of cotton is also the biggest importer as well as a consumer in the world, of what is otherwise also called white gold.
