Fujian province' cotton imports rose sharply from 2010, but the quality of the cotton is not good enough, China news.com reported on Friday.
All the 18 batches of cotton imported after 2011, valued at $16,270,000, failed to meet national standards, Fuzhou Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine stated.
According to the report, cotton imports have two major problems: Some foreign merchants sold cotton short in weight, or mix cotton stocks with new ones; Some trade contracts signed beforehand leading to a lower cotton quality.
Fuzhou Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau reminded cotton trade enterprises around Fuzhou to choose reputable foreign cotton merchants as trading partners, and to make clear all clauses in the trading contract.
The bureau suggested enterprises focus on the weight of cotton, quality inspection and quarantine certificates.
