    The International Cotton Advisory Committee (ICAC) will be having its 72nd Plenary Meeting in Cartagena, Colombia,  September 29 to October 4.

    Official hard-copy invitations to governments, cotton industry organizations, researchers and private sector participants were mailed yesterday. Additional invitations are available on request. The plenary meeting brochure prepared by the Organizing Committee in Colombia includes a letter of invitation from the Minister of Agriculture, and general information about accommodations, tours, visas and the history of Cartagena.




    The agenda of the 72nd Plenary Meeting will be focused on meeting the challenges of interfiber competition, improving productivity and efficiency, encouraging new investment, the impacts of regional trade agreements and shifts in the location of textile production.

    ICAC meetings are highly interactive and will include several World Café sessions, plus a regional caucus meeting.

    Approximately 400 people are likely to participate with attendance from the private sector and government.
