Uzbek cotton picked by children enjoys demand

Written by Stacey Dove

The fifth international cotton fair involving 300 companies from 33 countries started in Tashkent on 14 October.

Uznews reports that these participants do not care about many Western organisations that have called for the boycott of Uzbek cotton because it is produced involving forced child labour. A conference that preceded the fair noted that quality and the stable and timely supplies of Uzbek cotton to world markets were the main merits of Uzbek cotton.
