The online event is hoped to solve challenges as the US and Vietnamese cotton businesses have had difficulties in connecting and promoting trade exchange since the beginning of 2020.

According to Chairman of VITAS Vu Duc Giang, US firms always consider Vietnam as a key market for the US cotton industry, while Vietnamese enterprises prefer US cotton because of its stable quality.

Every year, the CCI continuously organizes trade and investment promotion activities, and those to share experience on corporate governance and production methods among manufacturing factories in the region and the world, Giang said, adding that these are practical activities, helping Vietnam's textile and garment industry expand its market and improve its competitiveness.

Vietnam is the third-largest cotton importer in the world hitting1.5 million tonnes per year, including over 800,000 tonnes of cotton imported from the US.
