A 17-member Cotton USA Special Trade Mission (STM) delegation from Vietnam toured the US Cotton Belt. During its US tour from July 22 to 27, 2018, the group travelled to New York, Cary, Memphis, McAllen, Lubbock, and Phoenix, to meet with US cotton producers, industry organisations, and exporters for the purpose of increasing US cotton exports.

The group kicked off the tour in New York with a briefing session and ICE futures seminar. They then saw cotton research in North Carolina, toured the USDA cotton classing office in Tennessee, and toured a cotton farm and gin in West Texas.

The group also met with representatives in the Cotton Belt’s four major regions and with industry organisations that include AMCOT, American Cotton Producers, American Cotton Shippers Association, Cotton Incorporated, Lubbock Cotton Exchange, National Cotton Council, Plains Cotton Growers, Inc., Southern Cotton Growers, Texas Cotton Association, Western Cotton Shippers Association, and Supima.

Vietnam is currently the largest importer of US raw cotton. The companies represented on the STM include Dong Khanh Textile Corporation, Ha Nam Textile Company, Hanoi Textile-Garment Joint Stock Corporation, Phong Phu Corporation, Phu Bai 2 Spinning Joing Stock Corporation, Phu Cuong Spinning Mill, Tainan Spinning Co., Ltd., Texhong Renze Texilte Joint Stock Company, Thin Nam Development & Investment Joint Stock Company and Vietnam Textile and Apparel Association.
