Apart from the neighbouring countries, India has also been receiving demands for cotton from several other countries, including Vietnam, Indonesia as told by Atul Ganatra, President, Cotton Association of India (CAI). He said that foreign buyers are interested in sourcing cotton from India as they find it cost effective and less expensive in comparison to other countries. According to him, Indian cotton exports would reach 65 lakh bales by May-end as Bangladesh, the world’s largest cotton importer, does not have much of its own production and its spinning mills largely depend on imports. India has already shipped nearly 53-55 lakh bales in the current season and contracts have been signed for another 8-10 lakh bales scheduled for shipment in April-May.
