On the 9th March ICA Bremen’s Managing Director, Kai Hughes, attended a brokerage event in Sanliufar, eastern Turkey where he was the key speaker. The event was attended by approximately 100 people, including many ginners from the region along with international merchants.
The aim of the event was to bring buyers and sellers together and Kai spoke of the importance of having their new laboratory, which is currently under construction, certified by ICA Bremen. He also spoke about the range of training courses available from ICA Bremen and the ICA that would enable cotton producers and ginners in the region to obtain a greater knowledge of cotton including best practices and ICA Bylaws and Rules. Kai also expressed his wish that this event would provide an opportunity for ICA Bremen and the ICA to establish a close cooperation with producers and ginners in the region.
