The article reports on the disappointment of the National Cotton Council (NCC) towards the cotton trade declaration in the Ministerial Conference in Hong Kong, China. Woods Eastland, chairman of the NCC said that as far as the trade policies of the U.S. related to the cotton industry are concerned, the declaration is not compatible. The declaration suggests that the European Union and the U.S. will have to make large cuts to provide access to products produced by the least developed countries who get nothing in return.
