The article focuses on cotton industry issues in the U.S. The issues were discussed by several thousand producers, researchers and industry leaders attending the annual Beltwide Cotton Conferences at New Orleans. The article also discusses the need for China to open its markets and its economic system. The Central America Free Trade Agreement seems to contain sufficient structural flexibility to maintain an effective farm program, but cotton producers have urged U.S. negotiators to insure that any domestic support reductions beyond the initial year continue to move global subsidies toward harmonization.
