ITC Trade data shows that the value of exports of Egyptian cotton fell between 2012 and 2016 by 4%. According to ITC Trade data Egyptian cotton exports amounted in 2016 to 462 million dollars, of which exports to Turkey reached 135.8 million dollars, and to Italy about 97 million dollars
By 2019 that cotton growing areas would increase to 400,000 feddans, while explaining that the fund is planning to plant 350,000 feddan next year, to meet the need for exports and the needs of local factories as pointed by the head of the Cotton Improvement Fund, Adel Abdul Azim.He also said that in media statements that the gradual increase in space dedicated to the cultivation of cotton serves the Egyptian cotton industry, and contributes to marketing it better until it settles in world markets
A strong return for Egyptian white gold is expected soon in the global market as the Ministry of Agriculture is seeking to increase the productivity of cotton, in the wake of a striking decrease seen in Egyptâ€™s cotton industry in 2016, particularly in the export market
After a catastrophic year for Egyptâ€™s cotton industry in 2016, a demand for the Egyptian white gold has emerged in the global market. Unlike in recent years, despite the increase in production, Egyptian cotton exporters have declared that the produced quantities are considered insufficient for the high foreign demand
The Egyptian Ministry of Agriculture has taken measures to support the national cotton sector by improving and increasing the productivity of long-staple and medium-length cotton, according to local media reports. The ministry also seeks to increase the areas used for cotton cultivation to reach 216,000 feddans with the aim to provide large quantities for the increasing demand from foreign countries
