[President Zhou Shengtao]

My hometown is in the countryside of northern Jiangsu Province, a place rich in cotton. In the golden autumns of my memory, large areas of cotton fields were all in blossom and busy cotton farmers were immersed in the happiness of harvest. That florid picture deeply impressed me and has become the cotton complexion which has accompanied my life.

China now has become the largest cotton production and consumption country in the world. There are 150 million cotton farmers and millions of circulation and textile staff and workers. An output value worth of hundreds of billions yuan is created annually.

In 2001, China entered the WTO, and the market reform started subsequently in all aspects of the cotton industry. These changes inject new development energy into China's cotton industry and push it to the forefront of the world stage as well.

As the industry organization of cotton manufacturers, operators and users, China Cotton Association works with the principles of service, coordination, self-discipline and interest guarding, shoulders the responsibility of protecting the benefits of the industry and its members, and promotes the sustainable development of cotton industry. This is not only a brand-new cause, but also a challenging one.

Together with all the colleagues of the cotton industry, I would like to work for the bright future of China's cotton industry.
