COTTON FOCUSES ON PROFITABLE POLICIES
Debra Davis
(334) 613-4686
January 28, 2003

National Cotton Council delegates will focus on policies and programs with the strongest potential to restore U.S. cotton industry profitability during the organization's 2003 Annual Meeting, Feb. 6-10, in Tampa, FL.

Delegates will review and adopt specific resolutions for NCC action in six key program arenas: farm and economic policy; international trade; public relations and international market development; research and education; packaging and distribution; and health, safety and the environment. They will place special emphasis on: 1) cotton textile manufacturers, 2) industry segments hard-hit by disastrous weather and chronically low prices, and 3) export development programs for U.S. cotton and cotton products.

They also will review trade and economic policies, which can increase consumption of U.S. cotton and cotton products, and identify programs and industry practices that provide opportunities to enhance competitiveness, efficiency and profitability.
