Cotton (204)

Syria produced 1.38 million metric tonnes of phosphate during the first 10 months of the year, according to the director of the Phosphate Mines Company in Palmyra, central Syria.
In a meeting with a European Union representative, the Syrian Minister of Economy, Mohammad el-Imadi, assured that Syria was not subsidising its exporters of clothing and apparels and that it was not dumping the export price of cotton yarns.
According to Teshreen, exports from public sector enterprises reached US$3.6 billion in the first 9 months of the year. Oil represented the bulk of that figure with US$2.1 billion.
Syria's cotton production this year is expected to be nearly 1 million tons, an increase of 74,000 tons compared to last year, reported Zawya. Syria produced 926,000 tons last year.
