Speaking of his trip, Robert said;
“ICA’s visit and participation in the China International Cotton Conference in Qingdao were well timed in view of the current difficult global market. The delegation met with many companies and organisations, to highlight areas for future cooperation among other things: CPD training, workshop and ICA membership. The response was very encouraging, demonstrating that industry participants want to adopt safe trading practice for their long term success”
