Cotton outlook shaped by China’s policies
WASHINGTON – National Cotton Council economists say cotton’s 2014 outlook will be influenced by China’s policy decisions.
Dr. Gary Adams, the NCC’s vice president Economics & Policy Analysis, told delegates at the NCC’s 76th Annual Meeting this week that China’s announcement of their intention to cease building reserves and offer support through a target price mechanism will shape cotton’s outlook for 2014.
“For the past three years, China has been importing the world’s surplus while its own production has entered the reserves,” Adams said. “For the 2014 marketing year, that dynamic appears poised to change.”
