The compiled influence of price, quota and quality cause sharp growth of import without quota. The price of import is mostly under 1% tariff or full tariff. General trade dominates and processing trade kept growing. India and U.S.A took the top of source countries. Qingdao, Shanghai and Nanjing are the largest destination ports, and Shandong, Jiangsu and Beijing are the main source of buyers.
According to Customs, for February, China imported cotton of 378,800 ton, 78,700 ton less than last month by 17%; and 237,300 ton less on Y-o-Y level, by 38.5%.
