Registration is now open for the ICAC's 81st Plenary Meeting, 2-5 December 2023 in Mumbai

Registration is now open for the ICAC's 81st Plenary Meeting, which will be held 2-5 December 2023 at the Jio World Convention Centre in Mumbai, India. After the conference — which has the theme, 'Cotton Value Chain: Local Innovations for Global Prosperity' — attendees are invited to participate in a two-day technical tour of India's cotton and textile industry.

The ICAC is the only intergovernmental body for the cotton industry recognised by the United Nations, and the 81st Plenary Meeting is expected to draw about 500 senior government officials, researchers, and private-sector professionals from all sectors of the global cotton and textile value chains.

Expert speakers will share their insights on the industry’s greatest challenges and opportunities, including:

• Technologies to increase production;

• Private sector recommendations for traceability policy;

• Facilitating R&D investment;

• Climate-smart production innovations;

• Industry 4.0 for Textiles, and much more.

‘Plenary Meetings are unique because they are specifically designed to help governments and other partners gain a better understanding of — and to debate — the most pressing issues facing the cotton and textile industry’, said ICAC Executive Director Eric Trachtenberg. ‘They use that information to develop global initiatives to support cotton value chains, address outstanding issues, and agree on global strategies to advance the interests of all our stakeholders. In addition, by giving a voice to the private sector during the event, we are helping Member governments align their policies with the needs of the business community to create a stronger and more vibrant cotton and textile sector'.
