Developing new links in China

In a move to develop new links in China and encourage more sectors of the global cotton industry to become involved in ICA activities, we held an open forum session during the recent Chinese Cotton Conference.  40 guests joined us – mainly from Chinese spinning mills, but also merchants, controllers and agents.

Following an overview of the ICA, we held a Q&A slot where we provided some practical information about the procedures for dealing with disputes, as well as clarifying the application of the trading rules.
The session was well received and created a good opportunity to learn from each other, listen to views, share best practice and drive forward new initiatives – such as creating a Chinese section on the ICA website, developing communication links to share information and establishing a network of key contacts for arbitration matters and procedures.
