This article reports that the 2003 ICAC plenary session, hosted by Poland, proved to be not only a fruitful meeting of professionals of the cotton sector, but was also a great success for the Polish Organizing Committee. The session's participants, representing 42 countries and five international organizations, appreciated the meeting's high level of merit. The issue that pinpointed participants' attention this year was the extremely important problem of government measures affecting the industry, presented during the first open session by Mark Messura from Cotton Inc. A considerable response was evoked by a wide range of topics discussed during seven breakout sessions, including the role of arbitral bodies in encouraging good trading practices, as well as new technologies in cotton spinning, and issues pertaining to production and mill use of organic cotton.
