Nowadays, as one of the world’s largest producers and exporters of cotton, Uzbekistan is undoubtedly one of the leading participants in the world cotton market.
On the initiative of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan with a view to expand and diversify Uzbek cotton’s export destinations, to increase efficiency and optimize shipment of Uzbek cotton to the world market, the First International Uzbek Cotton Fair was organized and successfully conducted in 2005. The Cotton Fair stimulated further development of market mechanisms in cotton trading, improvement of business relations between Uzbek producers and its customers. Taking into account the results of this event as well as high appreciation from international participants, it was decided to conduct International Uzbek Cotton Fair on a regular basis.
Following the established tradition, as well as considering wide experience of past years, it is planned to hold the regular VIII International Uzbek Cotton and Textile Fair on 17-18 October 2012 in Tashkent.
During the Cotton and Textile Fair participants will enjoy an opportunity to sign contracts for Uzbek cotton, set up long-term cooperation in cotton trading, as well as to be familiar with the quality of Uzbek cotton and latest innovations in trade and logistics. Moreover, during the Cotton Fair “round tables” and bilateral negotiations between Uzbek cotton exporters and consumers will be organized. The guests of the Cotton Fair will have an opportunity to participate in the cotton trading session on Uzbek commodity exchange.
Within the framework of the Fair it is planed to discuss current problems and prospects for the world cotton market development as well as to learn competent views of leading international experts on different topics such as:
