PERRY, GA. – On July 24, Pakistani Textile Manufacturers began making their way around the U.S. Cotton Belt to learn more about the U.S. cotton industry.
The event was coordinated by Cotton Council International (CCI) and the National Cotton Council (NCC).
The Pakistani textile executives’ first stop was Savannah, Ga. where they toured the Georgia Port of Savannah, followed by a visit to Cromley Farms, the farm of brothers Lee, who serves on the CCI Board, and Charley Cromley in Brooklet, Ga.
Georgia is a top producing cotton state and plays a major role in the U.S. cotton industry. The Georgia Cotton Commission is honored to be a part of such an event that promotes why U.S. cotton is the world’s preferred fiber of choice.
The textile industry continues to expand its purchases, and Pakistan is one of the largest markets of cotton consumption. The Commission wishes the group safe travels travel during the remainder of their visit.
