The Brazilian Cotton Growers Association (Abrapa) is promoting the Cotton Brazil Harvest 2021 Roundtable, an online event to further intensify its commercial partnerships with Vietnamese cotton buyers.

The webinar will be held on June 22th at 9 a.m. local time. The event will be supported by the Embassy of Brazil in Viet Nam, and the ambassador, Fernando Apparicio da Silva, will participate in the program.

The Cotton Brazil Harvest 2021 Roundtable is aimed at the business community and will provide a space for exchanging information among producers, mills, agents and merchants.

Cotton trade between the two countries has increased over the last ten years. Brazil is the fourth largest producer in the world and the second largest exporter of fiber in the world. Nowadays, the South American country supplies 23% of the global textile industry.

Viet Nam is the third largest cotton importer in the world and has increased its purchase of Brazilian cotton by 2,694% in the last ten years. In the 2010/11 season, Vietnamese imported 13,3 thousand tons of cotton from Brazil. The accumulated total so far for the 2020/21 season, with two months still to go, went to 371,9 thousand tonnes.

Founded in 1999, Abrapa represents 99% of Brazil’s cotton production and brings together 100% of the country’s exporters. “The Cotton Brazil Harvest 2021 Roundtable will consist of business roundtables that are totally adapted to the digital environment. We will have updated statistics on the progress of Brazil’s harvest, as well as strategic information on quality and technical aspects of the cotton we produce”, said Abrapa President, Júlio Busato.

The event is being held by Cotton Brazil, an international program for the promotion of Brazilian cotton. It is an Abrapa initiative and is implemented in partnership with the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex) and the National Cotton Exporter's Association (Anea). This is the second round of international webinars promoted by Cotton Brazil.
