pakistan buyer of Indian cotton

Pakistan has replaced Bangladesh to emerge as the largest buyer of Indian cotton in the October-December 2015 quarter on the back of a sharp decline in its domestic availability due to widespread crop damage from whiteflies.

Data compiled by the Textiles Commissioner’s office under the textiles ministry showed Pakistan imported 1.66 million bales (1 bale = 170 kg) of cotton from India during the December 2015 quarter.

In the same quarter last year, India’s total cotton exports stood at 1.93 million bales with Pakistan’s contribution coming in at 0.38 million bales.
