WHITE GOLD REVOLUTION:

RESHAPING AFRICA THROUGH SUSTAINABLE COTTON AND TEXTILES

FICOTA (International Forum for Cotton, Textiles and Accessories) is an African initiative aimed at improving the infrastructure and performance of the cotton value chain, textile and accessories. It also addresses concepts to include processing for better productivity in quality and quantity of goods and services. This an event organized by The African Chamber of Trade & Commerce (ACC), an African private sector initiative.

This event offers a friendly atmosphere for interaction, networking, exhibitions, meetings, debates, B2B meetings, and discussions between policy makers, development partners, companies, individuals, experts, senior executives, participants, and exhibitors from the cotton textile industry in Cameroon, Africa and around the world.
