At the seminar, the delegation made presentations on world cotton production, supply and demand, and US cotton fiber quality, sustainability, and delivery. The data and information in the presentations will enable mills to make informed, logical business decisions. ICE vice president presented ICE Futures in the first ever ICE official visit to Bangladesh.  ICE futures are closely followed by spinning mills all over the world.

As a guest of honor at Cotton USA, US Ambassador Marcia Bernicat spoke proudly of the strong Bangladesh-US economic relationship.  She also noted that the US is the number one consumer of Bangladesh’s exports, especially from its dynamic readymade garment (RMG) sector.

Ambassador Bernicat praised leading apparel and garment producers in Bangladesh for choosing top-quality US cotton to produce products that are in demand throughout the world.

The ambassador also applauded the willingness of the government of Bangladesh to consider removing trade barriers that limit access for Bangladesh importers of US cotton, as it drives up the cost of US cotton in the country and delays shipments.

During the fashion show, the country’s leading brands YELLOW and Amanat Shah, as well as Cotton USA licensee and Cotton, LEADS partner mills Envoy Textiles Ltd, Hamid Fabrics Ltd, and Square Group showcased a selection of Bangladeshi and western clothing.

The electrifying show displayed 100 percent US cotton and cotton-made garments, highlighting Bangladesh’s rich cotton apparel heritage.

In 2016, the Cotton Council International (CCI) introduced the observance of Cotton Day to celebrate US Cotton, as well as Bangladesh being the largest manufacturer and exporter of cotton apparel.
