Cote d'Ivoire: Cotton and Products Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Post projects MY 2018/19 cotton fiber production to rise to 725,000 bales (480 lb.) based on steady yield increases and the anticipation of continued government price supports for growers. MY 2018/19 exports are projected at 650,000 bales to reflect increased domestic supply and growing global demand. Local use remains limited at 50,000 bales. Indications from the current year’s crop are that the quality of Ivoirian cotton continues to improve, with an estimated two-thirds of the crop considered first-quality. This is partially due to seasonal variables, but after years of neglect during recurring political crises, a cotton sector which was once one of the region’s most productive and quality-conscious is currently experiencing renewed interest and investment.
