    Chapter 6 - Market profiles - South Africa 

     
     

    There are no specific support schemes for the local cotton growing, ginning or spinning sector.

     

    In terms of the SADC Free Trade Agreement, cotton lint from fellow SADC member states enters South Africa free of duty which provides cotton exporters in these countries with important preferential access to the South African market and which has allowed exporters in these countries to become the leading suppliers to South African spinners.
