    The Cotton Exporter's Guide is a reference book that contains pragmatic and operational information on the international cotton market. The objective is to provide all those engaged in producing and exporting cotton with a thorough and down-to-earth understanding of all aspects of the international cotton trade.

    This guide is primarily targeted at cotton producers, ginners, exporters and traders in cotton producing developing countries, mainly, but not exclusively, in Africa. As the guide provides a comprehensive view of all aspects of the cotton value chain from a market perspective, it will also help government officials to gain a deeper understanding of the crucial aspects that need to be addressed in cotton export development.

    The Guide covers all the essential components of the cotton trade. Its ambition is to meet the needs of today's exporters who face many challenges - commercial, technical, logistical, environmental and social - in an increasingly sophisticated and competitive trading environment.
