  • For Aug’19, seasonality was visible in the 5.3%YoY decline with the exports of value added and non-value added products declining by 4.9%YoY and 6.6%YoY, respectively.
  • Local cotton prices are also reflective of the trade data as they increase by 2.0%MoM in Aug’19 after raw cotton exports increased by 73.8%YoY, imports declined by 27.9%YoY while production remains low.
