U.S. Exporters, Cotton Producers Welcome Pakistani, Bangladeshi Manufacturers

Fri, 23 Jul 2010 17:52:16 CDT

U.S. Exporters, Cotton Producers Welcome Pakistani, Bangladeshi Manufacturers Textile executives from textile mills in Bangladesh and Pakistan will be touring the U.S. Cotton Belt to familiarize themselves with cotton production, processing and marketing in the U.S. and to meet with U.S. exporters. The trip starts Sunday and ends Monday August 2nd. The purpose of the tour and all COTTON USA Special Trade Missions is to build trading ties between the U.S. cotton industry and key textile manufacturing leaders - the main goal being to help U.S. cotton gain more market share across the world.

The U.S. supplies more than half of the cotton that the eight participating textile manufacturers from the two countries import each year - according to Cotton Council International President Wally Darneille. He says the tour presents a wonderful opportunity to give the important cotton customers an intimate look at the industry infrastructure of the U.S. and commitment to reliably supplying quality fiber to the world marketplace. The touring manufacturers are important because they represent some of the largest cotton consumers in the world - Pakistan being 3rd largest and Bangladesh the 6th largest.
