Trade Matters in China

The ICA visited China last month to meet with the cotton community and deliver two training courses.

Alex Hsu (ICA Past President) and Robert Jiang (ICA Business Operations & Development Manager) participated in the China International Cotton Conference held in Guilin and met with the China Cotton Association on matters of mutual interest.

Two courses were organised in collaboration with China National Cotton Exchange (CNCE), Qingdao West Coast Cotton Association and Zhangjiagang Cotton Association. Robert Jiang, Kevin Xue (ICA Ambassador) and Du Feng Du Feng (ICA Arbitrator) presented to over 200 delegates in Qingdao. The training covered ICA Bylaws & Rules, contract making and performance, agent, quality and testing, standards and value differences, mediation, arbitration procedure, List of Unfulfilled Awards Parts 1 & 2 and ICA membership benefits.

Speaking after the trip, Robert Jiang said; “It’s good to be back in China after a four-year gap, to meet old and new friends in cotton. I am pleased to see that the workshops attracted many industry participants, all with the same purpose of understanding and updating knowledge – continuing professional improvement in this ever-changing cotton trade environment. The interactive nature has made the workshops more interesting and rewarding.”
