INDONESIA: Traders Renew Cotton Import Contract With Australia
Textile companies in Central Java have renewed contracts to import cotton from Australia after a break of several months over the East Timor conflict, Asia Pulse reported on Friday.
Andi Sanang Romawi, a chairman of the Indonesian Textile Association (API) said new deals had been struck on textile and garment exports to Australia.
A political row resulted in the boycotting of Indonesian imports and exports by Australian longshoremen and Indonesia retaliated by stopping imports from Australia.
The Central Java's branch of API had agreed to import 17,616 tons worth US$ 2.7m of cotton from Australia and every month exported to that country 70 tons of textiles and garments, Andi said.
